Barbara Postel landscape painting donated to Doylestown Health


When it comes to providing a positive, uplifting environment, Doylestown Health recognizes the power of healing through fine art and is grateful to Carlos Guerrero for donating a beautiful landscape painting.

The 40-by-40-inch oil on canvas by Guerrero’s late wife, local artist Barbara Postel, is titled “Ice River II.”

“Barbara loved Doylestown Hospital and the care she received there. There is no better way to honor her memory than to support Doylestown Health,” Guerrero stated.

Postel lived and worked in the village of Point Pleasant in Bucks County from 1970 until her death in 2018. Many of Postel’s vibrant and skillful paintings echo a lifelong love and fascination with nature, particularly the landscape of her home area in Bucks County. A retrospective exhibit of Postel’s work will be held Dec. 7 to 31 in the A-Space Gallery at New Hope Arts.

“Local, original works of art in our permanent collection enliven the walls of Doylestown Hospital for the benefit of our patients, visitors, volunteers, and staff,” said Chief Advancement Officer Laura Wortman.

“Whether a painting, sculpture, or other fine art, these prized works that grace our campus speaks to the generosity of our community through the years. Donations of this kind help to further enhance the visitor and patient experience at Doylestown Hospital and create a welcoming environment for everyone—one where art plays a critical role in the healing process by reconnecting us to nature and our surroundings.”

Doylestown Health Foundation is deeply grateful for the extraordinary kindness of the community and the meaningful ways they find to show support for the health system. More information on how to support Doylestown Health can be found at
