Local Artist: Jennifer Bloom

Now through December

Art Reception: OCTOBER 22nd
Wednesday October 22nd from 5-7pm we'll be hosting an art reception for local artist, Jennifer Bloom.  RSVP here.

We are showcasing Jennifer's painting through December and invite you to meet her at our event and enjoy her beautiful animal art pieces. Stop in for a tour of our hospital, chat with staff and enjoy wine from Pour at Four and refreshments. This event is free and open to friends, neighbors, and well-behaved pets.


Jennifer Bloom comes from New York and was trained at the Rhode Island School of Design and happily also received a master's of fine art at U.C.L.A. She has been painting since she was 7 years old. She infuses a lot of New York attitude, panache, and hip style into her paintings. People have told her that her portraits remind them of painters from the 80's and that they are also very Hockney-esque in their approach.
