Hospice of Santa Barbara


Hospice of Santa Barbara welcomes the community to view the work of late artist John Schlesinger. Schlesinger created a diverse library of artwork, including paint, collage and assemblage. This will be the first time many of the art pieces will be on display.

Growing up suffering from a severe and debilitating case of Crohn’s Disease, Schlesinger turned to painting at a young age. His art often depicted somber meanings, channeling the challenges he faced throughout his life. His sister, Mary Schlesinger, describes the exhibition as a “trove of riches” that offers a small slice of her brother’s talent.

Date: Open House Reception Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2016. On Display until Jan. 24, 2016

Time: 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

Location: Leigh Block Gallery located within Hospice of Santa Barbara, 2050 Alameda Padre Serra, Suite #100, Santa Barbara

Mary Schlesinger will donate 25% of the proceeds of art sales to Hospice of Santa Barbara, Inc., a volunteer hospice organization. You can schedule a viewing of the exhibit by calling (805) 563-8820.
