Created by renowned photographer and Art with a Heart in Healthcare founding board member laird, this episode of the series of cphace goes to the Abacos, part of the Northern Bahama Islands. The lush nature, some of which was under water, was captured with a converted camera that records infrared waves of the electromagnetic light spectrum that is invisible to the naked eye. The images are then cropped, flopped, and merged to create a new original image. Then enhanced with color variations. The result is a symmetrical image of organic forms with a central axis. Within each image, nature becomes less complex in color but much more complex in its shapes, textures, and lines. Laird is generously donating 40 percent of his proceeds of opening night art sales to Art with a Heart in Healthcare.
Express your Selfie
Art with a Heart in Healthcare's "Express your Selfie" show presents the photography and mixed-media exhibition of talented patient artists from Wolfson Children's Hospital. Patients collaborated with artists-in-residence to create revealing and modern takes on the self-portrait while being treated in the hospital. Express Your Selfie provides an innovative look at the highly popular concept of the "Selfie" through the eyes of hospitalized children. Art with a Heart encourages these young artists to expand upon the basic photographic self-portrait, revealing something more personal. Their artistic additions help transcend their hospital experience while promoting a level of self-confidence and self-awareness. This program is sponsored in part by Wolfson Children's Hospital and Florida Department of State Division of Cultural Affairs.
Please join us Friday, April 24 from 6-8 pm at the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra for the opening reception of two incredible shows benefiting Art with a Heart in Healthcare.
