ART! Tim Tolman at HopeHealth – and a call for submissions

Four artists will be selected to exhibit their work in the 2024 season in a solo exhibit showcasing their work at HopeHealth in Providence. The deadline for submissions for the 2024 season is January 19th, 2024.

Since 2008, Public Art Works has presented artists from all over New England to be in exhibition with HopeHealth. The 2024 annual call for submissions is an opportunity to share art with visitors and staff in a beautiful space and welcoming environment. This is open to all artists living in New England and neighboring states who are able to hand deliver their work to HopeHealth Hospice & Palliative Care.

Students are ineligible, and there is no application fee. The HopeHealth Hospice & Palliative Care
Gallery Wall offers a professional hanging system with dedicated lighting. Art appears in a high visibility
area for visitors and staff. Large works are encouraged, with a 16″ x 20″ min. frame size. Framing
must be consistent in style. There is a $250 HONORARIUM for each artist selected for exhibition.

HopeHealth, the state’s leader in hospice and palliative care since 1976, initiated an exhibition area that would feature the work of Rhode Island and New England artists in its new facility in Providence. 

 “Just as it’s said that art can enhance life, speak to the soul, spark memories and help us express emotion, these art exhibitions can help us further our mission to provide for the spiritual and emotional well-being of our patients and their families, even as we provide physical care,” said Diana Franchitto, HopeHealth president/CEO. “We’ll also be promoting a sense of community and helping local artists by showing their work.”


Current exhibition: Tim Tolman, mixed media paintings

Tim Tolman, an artist with a studio in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, was born in Salt Lake City, Utah where he received a BFA in painting and drawing from the University of Utah. He is a Massachusetts resident.

Tim owned a Rhode Island based digital design and marketing firm for over 20 years and taught advertising design and computer graphic design at RISD’s continuing education program for over a decade.

Tim’s landscape paintings are a combination of materials and approaches. From initial drawing and massing to deconstruction using paper and other materials. This breaks the image down to rebuild it over. The work is about how a painting can produce the traces of its own creation, the time it takes to apply the materials and the marks on the surface that reveal the process. Sometimes they recall memory and other times they have no memory. They get tangled up in time and in turn tell that story. See more at:
