Gifford’s Art Gallery is showcasing the talents of Gifford’s Acute Care Social Worker, Wendy Benedict and Randolph Center minister Lava Mueller.
With no formal training, Benedict draws inspiration in many forms finding nature to be her greatest teacher. “Sitting still, observing, trusting the creative muse. The process is beautiful, fun, and suggestive of endless possibilities,” Benedict shares.
Benedict enjoys painting, working on home renovation projects, being with friends and family, expanding a culinary line of vanilla extracts and exploring Vermont’s great outdoors.
Mueller shares that she is constantly amazed and delighted by the beauty and multitude of visual nuances that nature provides on a daily basis. As a minister, she connects with the spiritual aspects of the world around her and the impetus for her creative endeavors, including her photo blog, Love Church Love Letter.
Mueller’s photographs and Benedict’s collection of pastels and watercolors are for sale and on display until April 24th. The Gifford Gallery is located just inside the hospital’s main entrance at 44 South Main Street in Randolph.
