Carmel residents Kim Greene and Deb Slack have been eager to hold their first exhibit together.
Greene and Slack, who are part of a group who own Carmel’s Art on Main, wanted to find a charity to support as well during the February exhibit.
“We knew we wanted it to be heart-related and local,” Slack said. “We’re passionate about our art and what we love to do and want to pay it forward to help other people.”
Slack and Greene chose Heart and Soul Free Clinic in Westfield. The artists will hold a reception, called Art with Heart, from 5 to 9 p.m. Feb. 7 at Art on Main, 111 W. Main St.
The clinic provides dental and mental coverage to people who have no insurance or are underinsured in Hamilton County and the surrounding area. A portion of the proceeds for the month from the sales of paintings by Slack and Greene will go to the free clinic.
“They are really in need of funding because it’s all donation of time from medical professionals,” Greene said. “One day’s clinic is $1,000. We’d love to be able to help fund that. This will go to people that really need it.”
Both artists specialize in oil paintings.
“We are featuring our florals and abstracts paintings,” Slack said.
Slack said she and Greene are each donating a painting for a silent auction that will be up all month long. The exhibit featuring Slack and Greene’s art will be displayed through the end of the month.
Treats and wine will be served at the reception
The clinic is open Wednesday nights by appointment and the second and fourth Saturday of each month. For more, visit heartandsoulclinic.org.
