Painting Courage
Submitted April 1, 2012 No Comment
Local art show “Art with Purpose” spreads courage and inspiration.
By Kate Rauhauser-Smith

How do you paint courage or inspire it? That’s what local artist Kathy Brusnighan asked a group of artists last year. The result? A 60-piece art show that’s traveling from cancer centers to hospitals to community centers around the region.

Sixteen artists painted answers to that question, and Brusnighan helped organize the paintings into a series of exhibits. Works with titles such as “Stillness,” “Moving Forward,” “Warrior,” “Out of the Depths,” and “I Will Dream” have hung in the halls of Forsyth Cancer Center, Circa Gallery, and Randolph Hospital. This month, part of the exhibit moves to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s Watlington Gallery, where it will remain through June. The rest will head to the Yadkin Cultural Center in May and June.

The traveling exhibit wraps up in August with a move to the Greensboro Center for Creative Leadership, where most of the art will be for sale for the first time. When the exhibit ends in November, it will have shown in five health venues and various other sites for 15 months.

“I have always wanted my art to be more than good, more than income, more than my vehicle to create a pretty picture to hang on the wall,” Brusnighan says. “To know that some of the artists who have participated have received new direction and purpose is rewarding.”
