Himmelfarb Gallery

The Himmelfarb Gallery at Maryland University of Integrative Health is named in honor of Helen M. and Annetta E. Himmelfarb, a mother and daughter who each had a great love of art. The Foundation bearing their name presented the school with a gift of $1 million, the largest donation in the university’s history.

Winter’s Call

On Display Now in the Himmelfarb Gallery

Winter exhibits many forms. Whether wrapped inside its cozy nooks or stretched across its silent landscapes―winter’s images, dreams, and scenery lead us inward toward reflection. This season cradles hushed mysteries in its chilly slumber while it nestles our unconscious and nourishes the imagination. It covers us. From the depth of its blanket of darkness, winter calls us to return. Winter calls us to the light.

On display now in the Himmelfarb Gallery is Winter’s Call, an exhibit featuring the works of artists Barbara Abrams, Michelle Renee Garrison, Julie J O’Connor, Joyce Ritter, Steven Schiff, and Christine Lee Tyler.

Exhibition: February 8 – March 23, 2018
Reception: Thursday, February 15, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Since its opening in April 2003, the gallery has featured four exhibitions annually, all focusing on some aspect of healing, wellness, or nature, in keeping with the university’s mission. Through the years, the gallery has been home to paintings, drawings, prints, photography, fabric, and artist-made paper. Artworks are generally for sale, with purchases made at the Meeting Point Bookstore.

The MUIH Art Committee selects artists after a review of their artworks.  Artists interested in exhibiting should submit an application here. If you have any questions about the Himmelfarb Gallery, please email himmelfarbgallery@muih.edu.
