January-March 2024

Featured Artist: Tom Hutton

People are drawn to the power of storms, of nature showing off its strength and unpredictability.

From typhoons, tsunamis, hurricanes and tornados to gentle rains, fog, billowing dark clouds, ice storms and more, we invite you to portray stormy weather using landscapes, seascapes, sky portraits, events, or perhaps internal storms, dreams or emotions.  Stormy weather can be dramatic, exciting, scary or calming.  Works may be realistic or abstract, or impressions / feelings, or a combination.

Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center will host a show of artworks relating to the theme Stormy Weather. This show runs January through March 24, 2024. As usual, you can be creative in your interpretation of the theme, keeping in mind that art on the hospital walls is meant to entertain and de-stress the patients, families, staff, and general visitors.  It is not a venue for nudity, violence, morbidity, or as a political soapbox. Thank you for your continued positive approach to art in these shows.

Artists may enter 1-3 pieces using painting, collage, mixed media, drawing, photography or assemblage in all artistic styles: representational, abstract, impressionistic, or futuristic.  All works must be able to be hung on the wall.

Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center’s Art Program continues to remain free to enter. Please consider donating to the Hospital’s Art Fund if you are able. For more information, please email Amy at
