Hospice of Santa Barbara is hosting an open-house reception to welcome the work of local photographer Betsy Mooney on Wednesday, April 25 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The exhibit, titled “On Tender Wings,” will be featured in the Leigh Block Gallery until mid-July.
Mooney’s exhibit will showcase photos of butterflies that she was inspired to take in memory of her son Joshua, who passed away in October of 2005. Along with counseling through Hospice of Santa Barbara, Mooney credits the creative process of photography for helping her heal. And looking at her photographs, it is easy to see why the graceful butterfly, which is the symbol of Hospice of Santa Barbara and representative of change, growth and metamorphosis, became one of her favorite subjects.
Refreshments, cheese and wine will be served at the reception, and Mooney will donate a portion of the proceeds from her art sales back to Hospice of Santa Barbara. For more information, call 805/563-8820 or visit www.hospiceofsantabarbara.org.
