Shauna Lee Lange of Shauna Lee Lange Studios in Charlotte County, Florida will be a featured artist in the upcoming St. Elizabeth’s Hospital of Washington, DC‘s art exhibit “Season of Thanks“. Season of Thanks is a concept project curated by Randall Holloway of Holloway Ventures, also of Washington, DC.
The innovative art show will be on display from November 2, 2012 through January 3, 2013. It seeks to explore the connection St. Elizabeth’s patients have to the people who love and support them. The emphasis will be on family, children, and friends, yet includes other forms and models of inspiration. St. Elizabeth’s Hospital is a psychiatric hospital operated by the District of Columbia Department of Mental Health. The hospital was founded by the US Congress in 1852. The art gallery space hosts exhibitions by the patients, staff, and visiting artists.
