Monthly the McLean Auxiliary invites different artists to their display work in the art gallery in the McLean Health Center, 75 Great Pond Rd, Simsbury. Visitors, residents, and patients all enjoy the variety of mediums and subject matter. Pierre Bastien of Broad Brook is the July artist. His exhibit is wooden bowls, candle sticks and other pieces created on his lathe. Pierre loves to work with a wide variety of woods so the items are each very different and special. He seasons his own wood appreciating donations from his brother-in-law who manages the Quabbin Resevoir. McLean Home resident, Pam Yost, is an artist herself. She delighted in the many types of woods and patterns of Pierre’s pieces.
The McLean Auxiliary thanks Pierre for sharing his passion. The gallery is open to the public seven days a week. While you’re seeing the show, stop by the Auxiliary Gift Shop by the gallery. To offer to display your artwork, call 860-658-3700.
