Since the opening of the new Yager Esthetics a little over 2 years ago, we have dedicated space for the display of artwork from Hispanic artists. I have always felt passionately about the crossover between Plastic Surgery and the creation of art. Having this space enables all of my patients to enjoy and learn about emerging latin artists.
One of the nicest parts of this program is the Y Gallery Artist Night, where we sponsor and pay for an evening at Yager Esthetics where the artist can speak about their work, and interact with the public. This helps them get their work out and sometimes sell a few pieces.
What I didn’t expect was how much all of the people and patients and I enjoyed the interactions. To see the paintings is lovely, as they are all well done. But to watch the artist as they explain the meaning behind the pieces, and the influences on their art is magical.
I encourage anyone out there who has not been to a Y Gallery event to do so. We advertise them in the office and on our website, www.dryager.com. You can always email or call us to find out when the next opening will be. You do not even have to be Hispanic.
