Carol Meckling on display Now at Met Vet through March

Save the Date: February 4th from 5pm to 7pm 

Artist Reception | Valentine's Day Portraits and Open House Event

Our current artist Carol Meckling has her artwork on display available for purchase at Met Vet through March! Price points range from $80 to one-of-a-kind original pieces at $325. We invite you enjoy her impeccable talent at our hospital during normal business hours.

"I enjoy the active meditation that happens while making art; the incredibly focused attention, being really present with what I’m doing, time seems to stand still.  Each piece is the culmination of my life experiences; from the execution of the painting because of techniques I’ve learned, to the endless images I store in my brain and unconscious, to what I learn from observing the natural world and observing the nature of things...a moment defined in a constantly changing natural world."
