---- — Andover artist and Middlesex Community College painting and drawing teacher Tamara Krendel is using her art to turn waiting rooms into galleries.

The Andover artist is exhibiting work in the show “Illuminations,” which is currently on display at Massachusetts General Hospital’s Cancer Care Center’s Yawkey Building, 7 B. The show will continue through the end of January.

Illuminations is a rotating art exhibit housed in the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and many of its affiliate locations.

The exhibit is intended to offer enlightenment and encouragement to patients, families, staff and friends of the Cancer Center as they receive care, provide care, or accompany loved ones.

Illuminations has transformed generic waiting areas into a virtual art gallery of revolving exhibits that feature works by numerous regional and national artists, according to a release.
