Helen Hayes Hospital in West Haverstraw is hosting an exhibit by the photographer Sandi LoConti. The exhibit will be on view in the hospital’s Atrium from April 1 through April 30, 2004.
Ms. LoConti is displaying a collection of her digital watercolors. She began taking pictures many years ago and has refined her original photography into unique digital art. Sandi is inspired by the gardens, architecture and coastline of the northeast and uses her art to share this with others. The changing of the seasons and the varied landscapes are constant sources of ideas and she frequently travels to Cape Cod and New England for inspiration.
Sandi is a voracious worker in the fight against breast cancer. To date, she has raised over $50,000 for the cause and a portion of the profits from oaktreegarden.com (her web site) are donated as well.
Sandi states, “To me, art is surrounding yourself with the images that make you smile and feel at home. I hope my photography softens the world around us and brings a sense of stillness to our otherwise hectic lives.”
An opening reception will be held in the Atrium at Helen Hayes Hospital on Sunday, April 4 at 3:30 p.m. 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.
