JUROR STATEMENT:

"The setting for this show has everything to do with the pieces chosen. This is a display for patients and visitors. It is my hope there will be moments that both can pause a moment and reflect and or connect. Art can be a wonderful healer for the artist as well as the viewer, in sickness, health, sorrow and joy. My late husband, Jean A. Chapman, M.D., was thrilled with this annual venue having been not only a physician but also a patient in this hospital. I would like to think he would have approved of my participation."
