Exhibition at Rochester Art Center - March 22 to May 28 by Cameron Jarvis

Dear friends,

Now that I know, I want you to know too! I have been invited to exhibit at the Rochester Art Center in Rochester Minnesota as part of their 2017 RAC Emerging Artists Series. I have begun creating new artwork that will be on display from March 22nd to May 28th  in the 2nd floor gallery. Mark your calendars for the opening reception on Thursday, March 23rd, from 6 to 8 pm, featuring an artist talk at 6:30.

Executive Director Megan Johnston and Curator Su Legatt visited me in my home studio earlier this month, and we had a fruitful conversation about the current direction of my work, and our vision for the exhibition. I am planning to employ more map imagery to talk about the places I’ve called home.

I will be resurrecting my blog in some capacity to catch you up on the past few months, and keep you in the loop as I start preparing for the show in earnest. You can learn more about the Rochester Art Center by visiting their website.

See you in 2017!

Hudson Hospital and Clinic Healing Arts by Cameron Jarvis

Today I visited the Hudson Hospital and Clinic to see the lobby where I will be displaying some work later this year. I met with Chelsea Kelly, who runs the Healing Arts program and she shared with me a little bit about the program.

The Healing Arts program is a partnership between Hudson Hospital and the Phipps Center for the Arts. Their goal is to provide a holistic healing process by creating uplifting and low-stress environments with art. They were committed to this goal from the very beginning, and involved Integrative Spaces Specialist Carole Hyder at the blueprint level of designing the building. She carefully designed such features as the flow of the hallways, determining the 'heart' of each building on the campus, and use of the 5 key elements of Feng Shui in the hospital. You can read more about Healing Arts here, and learn more about Carol Hyder here. The program provides a relaxing atmosphere for patients, and acts as a gallery space for many local artists and the art-loving public.

My work will be on display August 17 - November 13 in the Medical Office Building Lobby. There will be a reception for all the artist exhibiting as part of the Healing Arts program on November 4. I'll make announcements for the show and exhibition closer to the date, but if you would like to receive a postcard be on my email newsletter list please sign up in the contact tab.
