The Eye Clinic of Texas has been known for caring for the visual needs of Galveston County, now it has taken on a new role as an art gallery by displaying the visually appealing work of Sugarland artist, Diana Green. Her nonrepresentational paintings adorn the walls of The Eye Clinic. “They are bright and bold and are a treat for the imagination”, says Dr. Allan Fradkin. “Patients, as well as staff can be heard interpreting what they see in the art”. The Eye Clinic is displaying works from two of her collections – Enchanted Inspirations and the Heavy Metal Collection. They are on loan to The Eye Clinic, but available for sale if someone wishes to take a piece home.
The Eye Clinic plans to participate in the upcoming November ArtWalk. Besides the creations from Ms. Green, The Eye Clinic’s collection of designer frames will also be on display and available for purchase. The extensive collection of frames from Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Prada and David Yurman are truly a work of art themselves.
Founded in 1972, The Eye Clinic of Texas offers the latest in cataract and refractive surgery, as well as a full-range of other eye care services at three locations throughout Galveston County: League City, Galveston and Texas City. For more information, call (800) 423-3937 or visit www.ecot.com.
Here is a little bit of background information on artist, Diana Green.
My mother is an artist and I started painting as a child sitting next to her outdoors at our home near The Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis. Later in college at George Washington University, I took classes at The Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. I started painting again after my retirement 7 years ago. . I designed training course material at Southwestern Bell prior to my painting. My inspiration for the Enchanted Inspirations collection was from my spirituality within coming out of me in the form of movement and color. I paint with joy when I meditate on God. The Heavy Metal Collection was my response to edgy new age art and my fascination with things shiny and alive.
