SPRING COLLECTION 2013
Ah ... spring. A time for new beginnings and of course new art! Take a look at some of our latest including this beauty painted by bedside volunteer, teacher, mother, fly fisherman and art therapist extraordinaire, Sandy Ottewell-Watson.
As volunteers, hearing someone say that our deepest intentions bring comfort and a certain peace is more than we could ask for. Yet here in Catherine Dabels' re-telling of a volunteer visit with a patient and her friend, we witness how reciprocal impressions on the soul can be.
I have seen how art in a dear friend's room brightened up her hospital stay. It was beautiful.
Art à la Carte is a registered charitable organization that brings colour, connection and comfort to thousands of people in Alberta medical settings every year. Artwork is placed in treatment areas, at the bedside and in corridors, transforming sterile environments into places of beauty and hope.
