Shelter from the Storm

Well, I'm livin' in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line
Beauty walks a razor's edge, someday I'll make it mine
If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born
Come in, she said
I'll give ya shelter from the storm
-Bob Dylan

Casey Blanchard in 2015 Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center Fall Art Exhibit

Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center has opened its 2015 Fall Art Exhibit with Shelburne, VT artist, Casey Blanchard, among the six artists selected for the show. The DHMC Fall Exhibit, running now through December, is displaying Blanchard’s work in its Level 5 Rotunda. Blanchard’s images lend themselves well to the affirming effects art has on healing, many of her prints are currently in hospital private collections. Blanchard has eleven monoprints on display illustrating the diversity of her work and artful use of organic elements often found in her prints. Among her works are two digital images of her “Looped” series, printed on 32” aluminum panels. This is a new medium Blanchard has been working with for its affect with her art, and for its protective and frameless benefits. Blanchard’s work in its original size is luminescent and contemplative, a larger scale takes those elements to an even greater dimension. DHMC is located at One Medical Center Drive, Lebanon, NH. For more information on Blanchard, visit her website at www.caseyblanchard.com or visit her studio at Brickwork Art Studios, 266 South Champlain, Burlington, VT (call ahead!).
