PORTFOLIO - Opening Reception


- Friday, September 14, 7-9pm

Join us for the opening reception of PORTFOLIO, and the official launch of Smith Center for Healing & the Arts' Art Advisory!

Through the thoughtful integration and selection of contemporary fine art, the new Art Advisory assists private collectors, corporations, and healthcare facilities in transforming their live and work environments into healing spaces. We offer innovative, evidence-based design slutions and customized services including curatorial art plans, installation & framing coordination, and artwork selection according to each client's budget and timeline. Art Advisory proceeds will support Smith Center's life-enhancing work with cancer-survivors, caregivers, and veterans. 

We represent a diverse pool of artists working in all media, including Joanna Axtmann, Cynthia Back, Carol Barsha, Joan Belmar, Natalya Borisovna-Parris, Anne Bouie, Carolyn Case, Kay Chernush, Nancy Cohen, John Cotterell, Alison Hall, Sharon Lee Hart, Shea Naer, Andrew Reach, Rachel Rotenburg, Valerie Theberge, Pamela Viola, Kazaan Viveiros, Tom Wagner, and Ellyn Weiss. To learn more about each artist, visit the Art Advisory home page.
