Andrea McCluskey’s Art

We are delighted this month to showcase the artwork of Andrea McCluskey, a local printmaker. She teaches relief and monotype printmaking classes as well as design at Hood College. She also teaches young student at Lucy School, an arts-based school in Middletown, MD. As a printmaker and artist, Andrea is interested in the process of layering imagery, and discovering new “languages” that the mark-making in printmaking can reveal. It is a very magical process, because printmaking is an indirect process, much is hidden until the paper is pulled back from the printing plate or woodblock. There is alchemy involved.

Val-Pak Coupons

It’s recently come to our attention that Val-Pak coupons are delivered disporportionately to higher income homes, leaving people who might most benefit from discounted pricing out of the deal. If you do not want to use ythe Val-Pak coupons you receive in your mailbox, please bring them into our clinic. We are working with local agencies to redistribute among those in need.


New Sign

Thank you to Jennifer Leader Anderson at A Gust of Wind Boutique who designed and made a new sign for the clinic’s reception room, per our request.
