Creative Corridors Program

Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center is proud to announce that in conjunction with The dA Center for the Arts in Pomona, we will be showcasing paintings in the waiting area of Outpatient Surgery on the second floor of the Robert & Beverly Lewis Outpatient Pavilion. A portion of sales goes to the Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center Foundation.

Artwork will be rotated in order to feature a variety of local artists. The current featured artist is Dovey Dee.

Artist Statement: “I am excited and pleased to be able to share my vision of the Australian landscape. These works are part of my embracing and exploring my adopted country and my desire to share that vision with my homeland. These paintings are a compromise between abstraction and representation and seek to convey the sense of place, space and light of Australia.

When I suffered my own heart attack in 2000, shortly after moving to Australia, I longed to have something beautiful to look at while I was in the hospital. Furthermore, after the death of my sister in 2008, I wanted to create paintings that were free from angst; work that would be a place of refuge for the viewer as well as a record of the extraordinary landscapes of Australia. I hope that sense of peace is what the viewer is responding to in this work. I am trying to make good work that is a restful, heartfelt dwelling place for the viewer.”

Dovey Dee Biography: Dovey graduated from Scripps College in 1983 with a BA in Studio Art and graduated from Claremont Graduate University in 1985 with an MFA in Paining. Her professional career has been focused on spatial data engineering in support of environmental science.

The dA Center for the Arts, located in downtown Pomona is extremely proud for the opportunity to curate the corridors of Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center with art that offers patients and visitors an invitation for inspiration and escape.
