University Medical Center of Princeton (UMCP) will host a wine and cheese reception on Friday, November 17 to mark the opening of “From New Jersey to Arizona and Back,” an exhibit of paintings by Hopewell native Deb Strong Napple.
The reception is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Art for Healing Gallery, located in the concourse connecting UMCP to the Medical Arts Pavilion and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Community Health Center. RSVP by November 10. To register, visit www.princetonhcs.org/calendar.
Attendees may park behind the hospital in lot V4, adjacent to the Medical Arts Pavilion (MAP), and use the North Entrance, which is to the left of the MAP Entrance.
Napple, who now resides in Arizona after living in New Jersey, Virginia Beach, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Guam, produces etchings, woodcuts, and paintings using a variety of media. The artworks featured in “From New Jersey to Arizona and Back” are plein air landscapes.
The exhibit will be on display in the Art for Healing Gallery from November 13 through February 28, 2018.
Woodcuts and paintings by Napple are also part of UMCP’s permanent art collection, which includes more than 300 paintings, sculptures, photographs, and other works that are displayed throughout the hospital as part of the Art for Healing program. Research shows that viewing art can help alleviate anxiety and stress, reduce blood pressure, shorten hospital stays, and even limit the need for pain medication.
The Art for Healing Gallery, made possible by a generous donation from Princeton Anesthesia Services, features rotating exhibits of artists whose work is in the permanent collection. Works in the gallery are available for purchase, and a portion of the proceeds benefits the hospital.
