CMH’s ‘Splashes of Color II’ Art Exhibit Opens
Ventura, California, 06/05//2012
Community Memorial Hospital’s first-floor lobby and hallways will be decorated with a vibrant and eclectic mix of paintings and drawings by local artists when the hospital holds its “Splashes of Color II” art exhibit open to the public June 11 through September 9.
The exhibit’s theme was such a success that artists and collectors alike asked to do it again! Inspiration for the original theme came during an organizing meeting where committee members were struggling to come up with a theme, when Haady Lashkari, a Community Memorial Health System administrator, blurted out, “Why don’t we just call it ‘Splashes of Color’?”
CMH provides a venue where patients, patient’s families and visitors all are soothed, inspired and grateful to view local art. The exhibit, a joint partnership between CMH, the Buenaventura Art Association and the Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation, is located on the first floor at Community Memorial Hospital, 147 N. Brent St. in Ventura. Any proceeds are used for future exhibits as well as to benefit local artists and the foundation’s philanthropic efforts.
Community Memorial Hospital is a member of Community Memorial Health System, a not-for-profit health system, which is comprised of Community Memorial Hospital, Ojai Valley Community Hospital, and twelve family-practice health centers entitled Centers for Family Health. The health system is located in Ventura County, California.
