“On River Road in Waterville,” watercolor, by Dr. Paul Brand, associate professor of physiology and pharmacology, is one of more than 50 works on display in the Health Science Campus Artist Showcase.

The seventh annual Health Science Campus Artist Showcase is on display on the fourth floor of Mulford Library through Tuesday, Feb. 21.

The exhibit features more than 50 pieces, including photography, paintings and multimedia work, contributed by more than 20 artists.

“It’s interesting for attendees because all of the artists are students, staff and faculty in the health sciences fields,” said Jodi Jameson, an instructor in the College of Nursing and librarian at Mulford Library, who is a member of the artist showcase committee. “The showcase is a nice way to highlight the creative and artistic talents of our campus.”

An opening reception for the Health Science Campus Artist Showcase will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27. Roy Schneider, manager of medical illustration at the UT Center for Creative Instruction, will be the featured speaker.

Visitors can view the works during regular library hours: Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to midnight; Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday from 9 a.m. to midnight.
