Another month has come and gone and the artist featured at the Magruder Hospital Healing Wall has also changed: This time featuring The Arts Garage (TAG) resident artist Shelby Bork.
The Healing Wall is a rotating exhibit of artists from around Ottawa County and began more than eight years ago as a collaboration between the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council and the hospital.
The idea is the Healing Wall, which is located in the outpatient wing hallway, can give a few moments of peace through the stress of a hospital visit.
Magruder Hospital is located at 615 Fulton St. Port Clinton, OH 43452.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Shelby Bork, a resident artist in The Arts Garage, is entirely self-taught, beginning to focus on art full-time after graduating with a degree in ceramic engineering from Missouri University of Science and Technology in 2020.
While studying at Missouri S&T, she began sketchbook journaling and doing henna tattoos at local events and festivals. She began pursuing art as a career after receiving her degree.
This fall, Shelby was an exhibited artist at The Arts Garage, with her collection "Medley" on display for about a month.
Many of the pieces at the Healing Wall are from Medley.
Mediums range from soft and oil pastels, block prints to watercolors and acrylic.
This display will be a little shorter than others normally at the Healing Wall, as Shelby will be moving with her boyfriend, Andrew Miller, to Dallas, Texas, around Thanksgiving.
All pieces are for sale.
To purchase a piece, please contact Magruder Hospital’s administrative director of marketing and public relations Lis Brand at 419-734-3131 ext.3145.
