MacDowell Art Gallery Annette Warfel Exhibit

“Connecting” Art Exhibit
Reid Health MacDowell Art Gallery


Annette Warfel’s beautiful oil and pastel paintings are currently on display in the MacDowell Gallery at Reid Hospital. Warfel discovered painting at age 59 when she enrolled in a pastel workshop at the Richmond Art Museum. Earlier in her life she had worked as a staff writer in the Palladium-Item features department and later did freelance work. Warfel says that “connecting with this part of myself was a life-changing experience that seemed both a complete surprise and an affirmation. I’ve continued to study art since that first class in 2009 and plan to grow old with a paintbrush in hand.”


The exhibit features a variety of paintings celebrating nature and landscape, especially the Midwest countryside, and will appeal to viewers who share a deep connection with the land. Most of the works are available for purchase. The MacDowell Gallery is located on the second floor of the hospital and the current exhibit will be on display through the end of the year.
