"Serving, supporting and enhancing Pikes Peak Regional Medical Center on behalf of the community."
The art gallery is featuring three artists. First is Jon Zimmer, who also goes by ‘Walks Alone with Friends’. He is a Native American and he was there on the hospital’s opening day to provide Native American blessings. Jon has the first wall as you walk into the hospital, along with one of the walls of the gift shop, along with many pieces of pottery. Jon lives in Woodland Park. All of his framed wall art pieces are prints and just the prints can be ordered separately.
Second, is Michael Slancik, who normally is a sculptor, but because bronze is cost prohibitive these days, he took up painting just recently. He is quite amazing. He has most of the second wall. He also has a black book of some of his other art which is available for purchase. When you see the pictures in this book of Indians you will understand why we aren’t displaying them in the lobby (intrigued?) Michael lives near Cripple Creek. All of Michael’s pieces are giclée prints on canvas and you can order just the print (not framed) in three different sizes.
Third, we have Dixie Claire, who has several small originals oils that are hanging in the gift shop and one larger piece on the wall around the corner from the lobby TV. She lives a couple hours away in Colorado. She does not have prints available, just these originals.
We have several pieces from all three artists displayed on several of our glass shelves around the gift shop, along with Jon Zimmer’s pottery. Norenwood wood pieces are now on the back wall and comply with our current Indian and Western theme.
