'Sunflower' by Mary Andrews, Grand Blanc, Michigan
Mary Andrews will be having a show at the University of Michigan Hospital Gifts of Art program in Ann Arbor. Mary's quilts will be in the Main Corridor West from August 24 thru October 12, 2009.
One of the first and most comprehensive arts-in-health care programs nationwide, Gifts of Art brings the world of art & music to the University of Michigan Health System. During times of stress and illness, the arts have the power to nurture and engage. The Gifts of Art programs utilize the arts to assist and enhance the healing process, reduce stress, support human dignity and renew the spirit.
This is a wonderful place for Michigan SAQA members to show their work. There are 7 galleries throughout the hospital and thousands of people pass through the hospital during the time your work is on exhibit. The University Gifts of Art program are very fiber friendly and welcome exhibits, such as the Michigan Quilt Artists Invitational, every year as well a few fiber artists. They usually have a call for entries in the spring every year.
