Mixed-media art exhibit views hospital patients "through the eyes of a chaplain"

From the Wyomingarts blog:

The inaugural exhibit in a new community outreach art program is "Through the Eyes of a Chaplain." It showcases mixed media artwork by Kathleen Jacobson, as associate chaplain at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. 

From the exhibit's brochure, the artist talks about her inspiration:
My paintings are based on interactions I had with patients in 2010 through 2011. They are intriguing stories that weave together patients' medical conditions and spirituality. The narratives range from spiritual awakenings to end-of-life and near-death visions. I purposely left the door open for interpretation by each viewer -- so did not include the stories with the paintings. Every person sees life through the filter of his or her own unique life skills.
The exhibit will be on display in the north hallway of the Medical Center in Cheyenne through February. An artist's reception will be held on Thursday, Dec. 8, 5-8 p.m., in conjunction with Cheyenne's monthly art walk, Art Design and Dine.
