The Gallery at HACPAC, located just beyond the entrance, hosts rotating art exhibits and small performance events throughout the year. The Gallery embraces its alter ego as a lobby for the Meridian Health Theater at HACPAC and encourages artists to coordinate with the themes of the performances happening on the stage. As a showcase for local and student artists, the Gallery will be open to the public on weekdays and special exhibit dates, as well as during performances. The City’s Department of Cultural Arts is invested in promoting art of diverse media and content and hopes to capture the support of art lovers and passersby who happen upon its offerings while attending a performance or visiting our offices. We strive to serve the community-at-large with exciting new work.
Artist on Display
By Ruth Bauer-Neustadter
It occurs to me why I want to paint
My life feels like a weaving
Separate pieces of thread
Different colors, varied textures
Always working at putting together
Fitting schedules, needs, commitments
Intertwining thoughts, relationships
Connecting people, ideas truths
Intermixing teaching, dance, art, politics, environment
Interlacing love, friendship, childhood, family
Making a cohesive unit of
Painting, found objects, canvases, always searching for something
Finding peaceful moments, solitude, depth
It is all done with energy and ease
A painting, a tapestry, that
Intertwines my many threads
There for me and you to see
A mirror of myself.
