Nathrop painter Sue Ann Hum captures familiar Salida scenes in a collection
of paintings on display
at Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center through Dec. 31.
Hum created her entire collection in 2019, using enhanced color and/or
translucent layering with different lines, patterns and textures.
Her work is recognized for its bold brushwork and colors, and is strongly
influenced by Post-Impressionist painters, such as Vincent van Gogh, and
Impressionists including Claude Monet.
Hum’s artwork has been featured in local and regional exhibits as
well as in Giverny, France, at Galerie Blanche.
She serves as the Salida Council for the Arts board president and Salida
Art Walk 2019 event chair, and was recently appointed to the City of Salida
Public Art Commission.
Hum is also a member of the local Plein Air artist group, Plein Air Artists
of Colorado, Salida’s DRAW group, Artists for Conservation and the
Sangres Art Guild.
All of her paintings in the hospital exhibit are for sale, and 25 percent
of the proceeds are donated to the HRRMC Foundation. This is the hospital’s
fourth exhibit this year, which is part of its mission to create a healing
environment for patients and visitors.

HRRMC displays the work of regional artists, with an emphasis on the Arkansas
Valley. For more information on exhibiting art at HRRMC, call 719-530-2217.
