On Exhibit January 2 – February 27, 2020
Drawn to colors and patterns in nature, Dr Gussak began taking pictures of her “everyday world” with her first smart phone. “Noticing” is an eclectic exhibit presenting a detailed perspective and focus of the artist’s close observation of hardscapes & softscapes. “Paying closer attention to my environment, noticing details of sidewalks, plants, and pavement has informed my doctoring and vice versa. The current practice of medicine challenges clinicians to balance their attention between the patient, the computer, and the massive amount of information presented to them every day. Photography enhances my ability to notice what is happening around me…”
