Hospice Savannah Art Gallery

Watercolors and Oils by Nancy Lebey Solana

Nancy Lebey Solana is a native of Savannah who grew up with a love for drawing and painting. She attended the University of Georgia, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Before graduating, she spent a semester with the UGA studies abroad program in Cortona, Italy, where she has since returned to both study and teach Alumni workshops. Nancy has primarily exhibited in local shows such as the Isle of Hope art show and has had a solo show at the Iocovozzi Gallery.

The beauty of the lines, colors, angles and light seen in creation and the everyday scenes of life are Nancy’s inspiration… The painting of a place or item that is seen daily but not focused on because of the familiarity of it, giving pause to stop and look again.

Primarily, though, this show was painted for Hospice Savannah in honor of Nancy’s father, Clifford Lebey, who spent the last six weeks of his life in the facility here. This show is dedicated to him, a man who loved and was loved dearly, and who modeled the essence of care, honesty, and integrity.

It is in his treasured memory and in honor of the dedication of those who work at Hospice Savannah to minister the same wonderful, tender care that gives solace and comfort to the families who gather in this place to say goodbye to their loved one. The grace and dignity with which its residents and family are treated here is a gift to both patient and loved ones alike. May these paintings bring a bit of comfort and pleasure to all who daily give of themselves, and to those who come in need of it.

This show will hang through March 31 and, as always, a portion of sales will help provide the many extra services and programs we offer our patients and the community.The Hospice Savannah Art Gallery is located at 1352 Eisenhower Drive, Savannah and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
