October in the Galleries
Welcome back! The Cooley Dickinson Art Galleries are excited to be up and running again after a long hiatus. The following artists will be exhibiting in the galleries at Cooley Dickinson Hospital and at 22 Atwood Drive during the month of October.
After dual careers as a university professor of psychology and a general contractor restoring old and historic homes, Dan retired to Leeds, MA. He has always been interested in art and photography, surrounded as he was by family photos. Retirement has given him the ability to commit extensive time and resources to his long passion for photography and sculpture. This exhibition represents his explorations of natural spaces, shapes, light, emotions and curiosities in both the environment and human behavior.
Ben Hotchkiss’ original abstract paintings reflect urban structural influences (and perhaps a touch of Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky) in the West Gallery. His work has also been exhibited in NYC galleries, “and we are honored to have him in our exhibit space,” says Volunteer Director Robin Kline. Viewers will see something different every time they walk down the West Gallery as they absorb the multiple layers of his designs.
