Castle Rock Adventist Hospital is at 2350 Meadows Blvd., just west of I-25, off Meadows Parkway. The reception to unveil Cindy Welch’s painting on March 16 is open to the community. 720-455-2508.
Sunset’s bright reflection ties Cindy Welch’s new watercolor painting to the land around Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, and the artwork was commissioned in late 2017 by hospital CEO Todd Folkenberg. The painting, with the town’s eponymous rock appearing in the background, will be unveiled in the lobby — where it will hang — during a public reception at 11:30 a.m. (unveiling at 12:30 p.m.) March 16. The community is invited to enjoy this most recent addition to the artist’s series of Castle Rock buildings.
“We want Castle Rock Adventist Hospital to be a hospital of healing for our patients, and believe there are many components of healing for our patients,” Folkenberg said. “One is the healing power of art and artwork, which is why we have a hospital gallery and a community gallery filled with artistic inspiration we can share with patients and visitors.”
Welch, a Colorado native, has lived in Castle Rock for 25 years, painting and photographing her world — as well as using her commercial art skills to create advertising for clients. She says “Color is my passion,” and held a solo show in the hospital gallery in 2016. She operates a community website, CastleRockBound.net, and belongs to the Castle Rock Arts Guild. She will have signed and numbered limited-edition prints of the new painting available for sale at the reception and will donate 20 percent of proceeds to benefit the hospital’s Healing Arts Program.
Also on the busy artist’s calendar in 2018: She is on a committee to organize the annual “Court the Arts” event on June 9 and 10 — an outdoor show co-sponsored by the Castle Rock Arts Guild and the Parker Arts Guild on the same day as the Ducky Derby. Watch for announcements. And she won a poster contest, held by the Douglas County Fair and Rodeo Board, to celebrate the 100th year of the fair. Her art will be featured on 2018 marketing material.
