The Reflection Gallery | 2014
The Gallery Programs at Wake Med Cary Hospital play an integral part in supporting community artwork while also serving to brighten the halls for patients and staff. WakeMed Cary proudly supports CVA in our efforts to engage the public through artwork by local artists, school children and staff of WakeMed Cary. This booklet contains an array of photography and artwork currently exhibited at the Reflection Gallery in WakeMed Cary Hospital. The unique components of each piece reflect each artistâ€™s inspiration, method, and message. The works are meant to engage viewers and evoke responses of joy, critical thinking, or, as the galleryâ€™s name suggests, reflection. The complexity and subjectivity of visual art allows viewers to become distracted or engulfed by the various colors, mediums, lines, and other aspects that make up the work. The Reflection Gallery provides this healing experience for hospital visitors, staff, and patients.

at WakeMed Cary Hospital is in recognition of local artists and in appreciation of the staff at WakeMed. The family and friends of Sandy Lappin (1947 - 2011) devotedly donate this gallery in her remembrance. The gallery spans close to 45â€™ in length and is surrounded by natural light and a courtyard view through the windows. Local artists from Cary and Wake County exhibit their work in three month quarters, four times a year. This gallery was made possible by the family of Sandy Lappin, in partnership with WakeMed Cary Hospital; an expansion of the gallery took place in the summer of 2013 with funds made possible by the Cary Photographic Artists.
