Charlotte Hungerford Hospital Auxiliary Features Local Artist Of The Month

The Charlotte Hungerford Hospital Auxiliary will display the land and seascapes of New England artist Kathy Zbell at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital from October through early November 2013, in the hospital’s main lobby hallway, 540 Litchfield Street, Torrington.  The public is invited to view the works during regular visiting hours as part of the Auxiliary’s ongoing “Artist of the Month” program. The art is available for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Auxiliary.

Kathy Zbell resides in the northwest hills of Torrington and specializes in very detailed land and seascapes that depict beautiful New England.  Kathy’s talent transports us to an untouched place in time.  Her followers tell her that the paintings have so much depth, that they can actually “walk into them”. Zbell has been an artist since the early age of 8, and has devoted years to private study and classes taught by numerous well-established New England artists.  This time was spent fine tuning Kathy’s unique style and creativity which set her work apart in the years that followed. Zbell’s ability has shown itself throughout all of New England, the New England she loves so much.  Her work has earned awards, ribbons, and countless articles.  Her pieces are also in private and corporate collections all over the world. 

The Auxiliary’s “Artist of the Month” program has been featuring paintings, photographs, and artwork each month from local artists for over 25 years. Their over 200 member supporters assist in raising money for the hospital through dues, donations, volunteering at the gift shop, and a variety of events including an annual fall fashion show and luncheon.
