An exhibit of pastel landscapes by artist Marjie Eakin-Petty of Evergreen, Colorado, is on display at Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center through June 30.Marjie Eakin-Petty

The landscapes at the hospital are part of a larger collection on display at the LaFave Gallery in Springdale, Utah, the gateway to Zion National Park.

“This body of work represents a deeply inspired time of prolific expression after decades of exploring and painting in many favorite places through all seasons in the heart of the Golden Circle of our Four Corners region,” said Eakin-Petty. The Golden Circle contains the highest concentration of national parks and monuments in the nation.

Best known for her serene depictions of water and dramatic light and shadow, Eakin-Petty added, “The landscape of the American Southwest captivates my interest by providing endless sources of majestic painting subjects.”

Eakin-Petty grew up in an artistic family in California. She worked as a corporate graphic designer and art director in San Francisco before pursuing fine arts and freelance graphic design and illustration. She also teaches a workshop series, “Your Creative Journey – Through Pastel,” to inspire others in their artistic interests. More information about her work and workshops is available at

All works in the hospital exhibit are for sale, and 25 percent of the proceeds are donated to the HRRMC Foundation.

HRRMC is hosting four art exhibits this year, as part of its mission to create a healing environment. The hospital 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.
