(Torrington, CT) Charlotte Hungerford Hospital Auxiliary is displaying the contemporary art of local artist Liz Spring through early February 2015 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. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the artwork support the CHH Auxiliary and Charlotte Hungerford Hospital.
Liz Spring is both an artist and part-time school teacher from Region 10 in Harwinton, CT. She received a Master’s Degree from the University of Hartford, and since then has participated in many shows and exhibitions throughout the region. Spring currently calls Harwinton home and lives with her daughter, dogs, horses and a cat.
Spring’s present work is a mix of pen and ink and a variety of painterly techniques. She is constantly experimenting with new styles and media, and is influenced heavily by the world around her.
“My work, especially my quirky bird pictures, a reflection of the humor I find in the environment we live in and the joy that I experience every day.” said Spring.
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.
The Charlotte Hungerford Hospital is a 109-bed, general acute care hospital located in Torrington, Connecticut, that serves as a regional health care resource for 100,000 residents of Litchfield County and Northwest Connecticut.
