Matossian Eye Associates’ Local Artist Program exhibited two artists for Spring 2017. Mary Luz Robinson works were presented in our Doylestown, PA office while James Feehan works decorated the walls in our Hopewell, NJ office. Local artists sign up to display their artwork in our reception areas for a three-month period. This offers visual interest for our patients and exposure for local artists.
As part of our Local Artist Program, a People’s Choice Award selection takes place to engage our patients with the artwork. Ballots are placed in the reception areas and patients are asked to vote for their favorite piece. After counting the votes, our patients declared “Beeswax” to be the favorite of James Feehan’s artwork and “Wondering Women” the winning choice of Mary Luz Robinson’s pieces. Choosing was not easy for our patients as the talent demonstrated in each of the pieces was varied and eclectic!
Our newest exhibits will extend through the end of September. pARTners™ Art is featured in both our Hopewell, NJ office and our Doylestown, PA office.
pARTners™ Art is a program of Peaceful Living’s Creative Gifts® community centers. Creative Gifts is a community-based day program for adults with intellectual disabilities and autism.
Artist Elena Drozdova has developed an exclusive technique that is a multi-step collective approach to art. The participants apply masking tape to a canvas in various patterns of their choice, paint over it and then remove the tape. The process is repeated multiple times until colors and patterns achieve a certain artistic quality determent by Drozdova. Following the natural suggestions in the piece, she then uses tape, brush, and scratching techniques to freehand an image to complete the painting. The results are vivid, colorful pieces of art valued for their distinct style.
The goal of the pARTners method is to use it as a model for collaborative creativity that is fruitful for artists and socially engages people living with intellectual disabilities and autism. Through this continuous practice, they find pride in the accomplishment of the finished pieces they have created.
