Watercolorist and painter Ruth Newquist of Newtown is the featured artist at this year's The Art of Caring, the Regional Hospice Art Show. The annual event benefits Regional Hospice of Western Connecticut, and takes place at 7 pm on Friday, June 11 at Boehringer Ingelheim Corporation, 900 Ridgebury Rd., Ridgefield, CT.
Newquist's work often depicts New York cityscapes, and New England scenes. Her work takes those sunny afternoons walking down the street in SoHo, and freezes their light in time.
Clients who are among the over 100 participating include watercolorists Betty Clark and Vicki Stevens, and photographer Kyle Riordan of Danbury, and others (if you are included, please let me know asap, and I will add your name here.)
Hospice serves almost everyone in some way, and has a huge, positive impact on patients and families during extremely difficult times. This is the 25th anniversary of The Art of Caring. The Danbury News-Times did a story which can be read here.
