Angels in the Operating Room - "Be Not Afraid" - Mallory AgertonCan you envision angels in the operating room, surrounding a patient in surgery?  Mallory Agerton did.  Recently, I was privileged to attend a preview party for this painting by Mallory, who is a West U resident and portrait artist.  This enormous canvas is titled “Be Not Afraid” and was based on her personal experiences while facing surgery.  The composition shows angels of many cultures, races and faiths, all guiding the operating room professionals at work. You can read more about this piece on her website  As a treat during the preview party, I was able to meet several of the children who served as models for the painting.

Well done, Mallory.  Our community is richer for having talented people like you living in West University Place!
