Haverford, PA (PRWEB) March 29, 2014
In support of local artists, Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology in partnership with the Main Line Art Center, hosts two exhibits every year to display work of outstanding artists from the Philadelphia and Main Line area. The exhibit gives the artist an opportunity to share his/her work, and helps to create a whole new and uplifting patient experience. This summer exhibit features Batik Painting on Silk by Laura (Formerly exhibited under the name Laura Pritchard).
The exhibit opening reception will take place on Friday, April 25 from 6 PM to 8 PM at the Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology gallery on 569 W. Lancaster Avenue in Haverford PA. The event is open to the public (Please R.S.V.P to rad(at)ringpfeildermatology(dot)com).
“The art exhibit at our office creates a positive and inspiring experience for our patients. Having a positive shift in their state of mind just before meeting their physician helps in motivating them to make a positive change in their life style and to comply with their treatment plan,” says Dr. Franziska Ringpfeil, board certified dermatologist and founder of Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology.
Laura’s work is a reverent, poetic approach to creating interesting and detailed worlds on silk.
The luminous fabric is a joy to work on and watching the colors of the dyes spread as they are absorbed is transfixing. The molten wax, as resist, is warm and flexible and creates another dimension to the experience. The craft of batik becomes a fine art.
