Newest Merit Badges on Display at the Warneford

May 7, 2007

Thanks to Carolyn Guillot, I have my first art exhibit in Oxford, albeit very informal. Six of my series of “pressure point” merit badges will be on display at a group show in the Psychiatry Department’s Common Room, Warneford Hospital, through mid-June.

The images are framed in two’s:

Menopausal symptoms, such as depression, migraines and IBS, are caused by hormonal changes that interact with the brain and other organs in the body. This is just a representative example, or my “favorites.” I haven’t stitched a TMJ or hypothyroidism patch yet, or a host of other related conditions, but there are so many possibilities. I love browsing the health and beauty web sites, and always look for pamphlets in doctors’ offices to add to my research files. I have way more material than I can stitch, and there are other subjects I’m just as interested in, but I do find medical conditions fascinating.
