Holman Family Dental Care is hosting a quarterly art exhibit this Friday, Sept. 27 at 6:30 p.m.
The family dentistry, which was founded in December 2017, is a gallery in and of itself, with intricate paintings and paper-crafts lining the walls of each room.
Dr. Shaina Holman, the owner of the dental practice, said that art is important to the calming ambience of her clinic, as opposed to the bright and flashy screens. The art has received a positive response from patients, who are able to look around while waiting during check-ups, and they often buy pieces on display.
Past shows have featured artists who use a variety of mediums and come from different backgrounds. The exhibit displays the work of established local artists, as well as work by art students with special needs. Holman said artists are not confined by any requirements or limits that influence the amount of work the practice shows.
Holman said she finds many artists through the Networking Women of the Triangle group. She thinks the office has become known for its quarterly exhibits, and she now has people reach out to ask if she will feature their work in her practice.
