Secret Talent Revealed at UK Arts in HealthCare Employee Exhibits

Published: Jul 29, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 29, 2014) — The UK Arts in HealthCare program commissions artists from as near as Kentucky and as far away as England for public exhibitions throughout the UK medical campus. But in the spring, the program called upon University of Kentucky employees to submit work to be considered for one of two employee gallery locations. The works selected for the two exhibits, titled The Healing Presence of Art, are now on display.


Thirty-three employee artists entered more than 80 pieces, including photography, pastels, acrylics and oil paintings, to be considered for the exhibits. In May, a jury of  local professional artists evaluated the works based on composition, aesthetics, technique and originality. A collection of 33 selected pieces, which ranged from nature photography to paintings of pets, were also judged on whether they contributed to the healing presence in the hospital. The exhibits opened at the UK HealthCare Good Samaritan Hospital cafeteria and the Pavilion H lobby of the UK Chandler Hospital in June.


"So many artists out there are hidden among our fellow employees, and they have a high level of talent, especially in photography," Jason Akhtarekhavari, member of the Arts in HealthCare staff, said.


The two collections will be on display until next spring when Arts in HealthCare will hold another employee art competition. Afterward, the art will remain in possession of the UK Arts in HealthCare program and go on permanent display in various locations on the UK medical campus that are currently lacking the presence of art.  All the works are accompanied by an informational caption sign that identifies the employee artist and where they work.
