Just about a year ago, Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital Emergency Department nurse Roselle Talag came across a brochure about the National ArtsProgram® exhibit being run by Adventist Midwest Health.
Still applying for a nursing position with the organization at the time, the Woodridge resident was sorry to hear she could not exhibit in the show, since it was only open to hospital employees. But following her hiring, she remembered the exhibit.
“I’ve been waiting for the announcement on this year’s National Arts Program, and it just so happens that it will take place at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital,” Talag said. “It just makes me even more excited, since I’m working at the hospital now.”
Talag has entered two acrylic paintings in this year’s second annual exhibit, which will open Nov. 6 and remain on display at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, 500 Remington Blvd. in Bolingbrook, until Jan. 5, 2014. Her husband has also entered two photography pieces.
It’s the first time either of them have been exhibited anywhere. So far, she hasn’t told her co-workers, excited to hold a little secret about her participation.
“The fact that I have shared something that’s a part of me, the painting that I’m doing … it makes me happy already,” she said.
