VTCSOM’s “The Influence of Women” Exhibition Showcases Hollins Artists

VTCSOM Art Exhibit

Works by Hollins University students highlight a new exhibition that explores and celebrates the many ways women affect their worlds.

Students in Associate Professor of Art Jennifer Printz’s Intaglio Printmaking class have contributed their creativity to “The Influence of Women,” which is on display at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine (VTCSOM) through March 1, 2019.

“Each student produced two amazing prints about women who have influenced them from friends, to family, to fictional heroines,” Printz explains.

The focus of the show was developed in appreciation for VTCSOM’s founding dean, Cynda Johnson, who is retiring at the end of this year.

Located at 2 Riverside Circle in Roanoke, VTCSOM will host an opening reception for the exhibition on Tuesday, December 4, from 4 – 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend. Contact Courtney Powell at cbrakes@vt.edu for more information.

Sponsored by VTCSOM’s Creativity in Healthcare Education program, “The Influence of Women” is one of three exhibitions held annually for local artists to showcase their works to the community and to reinforce to medical students the importance of having a community connection.
