Artist Isa Oehry Exhibit Opens in the Gray Gallery
ST. JOHNSBURY, VT (May 1, 2023) – The Charles M. and Hanna H. Gray Gallery at Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital (NVRH) is pleased to announce a new display by Greensboro artist Isabella (Isa) Oehry. The exhibit, which opens May 4, will run until June 26, 2023.
Isabella (Isa) S. Oehry, who was born and raised in the Principality of Liechtenstein, works as a writer and artist at her farm in Greensboro, Vermont. She loves the beauty and simplicity of farm life and enjoys rescuing old barn windows from their destined destruction at a dump, upcycling them into folk art.
An old, single pane window gets a new purpose. Oehry paints them with acrylic paint and leaves a large section of the glass unpainted. The paintings then hang against the wall and the unpainted section of the painting reflects the color of the wall. And, depending on the color of the wall, the character of the painting can change drastically.
“My main goal is to bring a smile to the faces of viewers,” Oehry said. “I love painting humorous farm animals and living on a farm in Vermont provides endless inspiration.”
The Charles M. and Hanna H. Gray Gallery is located on the hospital’s main floor. The exhibit will be on display until June 26, 2023. All exhibited art is for sale and a portion of the proceeds benefit the NVRH ARTs program.
