University Medical Center of Princeton (UMCP) will host a wine and cheese reception on Friday, November 20, to mark the opening of an exhibit featuring works by Princeton watercolor artist Jane Adriance.

The reception is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Art for Healing Gallery, which is located in the concourse connecting UMCP to the Medical Arts Pavilion and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Community Health Center.

To attend, please RSVP at www.princetonhcs.org/art by November 13.

Attendees should park in Lot V1 at the front of the hospital and use the East Entrance. (Facing the hospital's glass façade, the East Entrance is to the right.) Once inside, attendees will be greeted and directed to the gallery.

Ms. Adriance, a member of the Artists Gallery in Lambertville, is a signature member of the Garden State Watercolor Society and an elected member of the New Jersey Water Color Society. She has participated in juried group exhibitions and had solo exhibits in New York, Philadelphia and Princeton.

Her work is also included in the permanent art collection at UMCP. The collection was acquired over several years, and the works are displayed throughout the hospital as part of the Art for Healing program. Research shows that viewing art can alleviate anxiety and stress, reduce blood pressure, shorten hospital stays and even limit the need for pain medication.

The Art for Healing Gallery, made possible by a generous donation from Princeton Anesthesia Services, features a local artist on a rotating basis. Ms. Adriance's paintings will remain on display from November 13 through February 28, 2016. The artworks are available for purchase, and 20 percent of the proceeds benefit the hospital.

Prior to the gallery opening on November 20, 2015, UMCP, in conjunction with the Alliance for Arts & Health NJ (AAHNJ), will host an event in celebration of November as "Arts & Health Month." Beginning at 4 p.m., there will be guided tours of the Art for Healing collection at UMCP, and tour participants can meet several of the artists whose work is included in this extraordinary collection. This event is one of a series of events that the AAHNJ is hosting throughout New Jersey in November. For more information, please visit www.artpridenj.com.
