Through the support of Fay Pfaelzer Abrams, The University of New Mexico's Health Sciences Center Art program is partnering with the UNM Museum of Art to reopen the Jonathan Abrams MD Art Gallery with the exhibition: “Two Brothers. Two Approaches. Painting and Pastels by Richard and Kevin Hogan.” As part of the exhibition, an artist reception will be held Friday, Nov. 9 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery.
The Jonathan Abrams MD Art Gallery was founded in 1991 by Dr. Jonathan Abrams, a world-renowned cardiologist who came to New Mexico while serving in the Army in 1968. Dr. Abram’s and his wife were passionate art collects, so when the University built the Ambulatory Care Center Dr. Abram decided that all the new, empty walls needed art and started by bringing art from his home to display.
From there, Dr. Abrams founded the Jonathan Abrams, MD Art Gallery in the fifth-floor hallway outside of the Department of Internal Medicine to offer New Mexican artists a place to display their artwork, and to provide a venue at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center for patients, visitors, students and staff to view contemporary art.
The gallery is open from Nov. 5 through January 25 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is located on the fifth floor of the Ambulatory Care Center.
