September in the Galleries

The following artists will be exhibiting in the corridor galleries at Cooley Dickinson Hospital during the months of September and October. A reception for Ruth Rinard will be held in the NORTH GALLERY on Thursday, Sept. 6, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.


Robert Wordsworth
The World of Realism

Wordsworth’s paintings are traditional reflections of the world he loves–classic cars, ships, old barns, the ocean, mountains and fields. His background as a technical illustrator and as an art director for an art products manufacturer gave him a love for detail that is shown in his art work. He loves New England and that is where he finds most of his inspiration. His concentration is in oils and acrylics.

Ruth Rinard
See and Rejoice

In dark and lonely times, our eyes often take us beyond our skin. We are able to see more deeply, sometimes with mystery and awe, and even a special joy. As you look may you see and rejoice. Rinard uses pastels to reveal what the special things she sees in lines, edges, values, color and shapes as she moves between a visual and emotional response to the world.

Andrew Quient
Architectural Drawings   

While a potter all his professional life, Quient has a background in architecture, and is applying his training to creating a series of drawings of notable buildings in rural New England. The region is wealthy in public architecture from the Beaux-Arts era, especially buildings inspired by the work of the sixteenth century Italian architect Andrea Palladio. Quient’s purpose is two-fold: to honor and document these buildings, and to do so through the traditional skill of architectural hand drawing, at risk of becoming a lost art.
