Helen Hayes Hospital in West Haverstraw is hosting an exhibit featuring the works of the artist Michele L. Squibb and the students of the Green Meadow Waldorf School. The exhibit will be on display in the hospital’s Atrium from January 3-31, 2005.
Ms. Squibb will be showing her latest work, a series of watercolor landscapes, which is inspired by her ongoing education in the fine arts. Known for her pet portraits, created with colored pencils and pastels, Ms. Squibb is excited to be exploring a new medium and a new subject.
Ms. Squibb’s formal education in the arts reflects her continuing interest in a variety of media including production, graphic design, and illustration. Additionally, her love of animal representation has led her to explore children’s book design and writing. Ms. Squibb has been a member of the Rockland County Association of Craftsmen and Artists and has displayed her work at a number of locations in the county.
The Green Meadow Waldorf School presents the watercolor landscapes of its high school seniors. Located in Chestnut Ridge, Green Meadow is one of close to 200 Waldorf Schools in North America (850 worldwide) intended to educate students through a philosophy of the essentiality of art and artistic self-expression. The Waldorf School is committed to imparting students with the sense of the “common thread” in any educational discipline from history to math to science: “the artistic element” as a foundational principle in all pursuits.
The exhibit at the physical rehabilitation hospital is open to the public on a daily basis and is free of charge. For additional information, call the Public Relations office at 786-4225.
