Artist Robert W. Mayhall has Eight pieces from the collection purchased by the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center GRMC, Seguin, Texas, 78155, Reflections of the Soul Within hanging in the foyer of the Hospice wing at the GRMC. These eight Abstract Original Works of Art are now a permanent part of the living history of the hospital, and the city of Seguin.
Art has been shown to be of therapeutic use in hospital settings, taking the sterility out of clinical settings, by adding a sense of beauty and comfort. Guadalupe Regional Medical CenterGRMC in Seguin, Texas has been adding art to their hallways and walls for several years now.
The GRMC hosts local artists work in a display case located in the main lobby hallway. Every three months a local artist is featured. Past displays have featured many photographerâs works. Other parts of this hospital have sculpture and art from many artists within itsâ hallways.
The current artist on display until the end of June is me, Robert W. Mayhall. I started my stint on display with a Collection of 12 Original Abstract Pieces, entitled âReflections of the Soul Withinâ, in combination with prints of some of my other works.
The GRMC has bought 10 of the Original Abstract pieces of the âReflections of the Soul Withinâ Collection. The GRMC hung eight of these.
The GRMC has allowed me to place another Collection, âAgapeâ in the Display case, as the 10 they bought go through whatever process needed to hang on the Hospice wing walls. âAgapeâ is a collection of 12 pieces that are available for sale now.
People who are in hospitals are there because of need. These patientsâ physical needs are apparent. Their psychological and spiritual needs are also equally if not more important, and sometimes, not so obvious. Art offers inspiration, beauty, and most importantly in a hospital setting, hope to all that are exposed to these works.
My work centers around the soul. I am finding that this topic offers Hope to those who are dying, and also Hope for the families that have loved ones who are dying. Hope that their loved ones will still exist after their physical death. At the very least, Hope that there is more than meets this physical life.
