Spa Retreats at The Healthcare Gallery & Wellness Spa






Have you ever walked into a place and felt completely welcome and at-ease? That’s how you’ll feel walking into the Healthcare Gallery and Wellness Spa for the first time.


Open in 2014, the gallery and spa still remains one of Baton Rouge’s “best kept secrets.”


Tucked away at the end of Brentwood Drive, The Healthcare Gallery & Wellness Spa is the perfect getaway for couples, friends, companies, bridal parties and other small groups.


The inside of the Healthcare Gallery and Wellness Spa is just as beautiful as the photos you see on the online photo gallery. Spacious, bright and warm ㅡ you will be welcomed by smiling staff and a gorgeous interior.


At the main entrance, a wall covered in chalkboard paint lists the spa’s various services. There is everything from chemical peels to laser hair removal.


Whether you choose to sit in the gallery flipping through an Art + Design magazine while waiting for your massage appointment or get a workout in the fitness center, the choice is yours! And don’t forget to indulge in our rain head showers (yes, please!)


Let’s be real: the options are limitless at the Healthcare Gallery and Wellness Spa. Arranging a meal plan, meeting with a yoga instructor and getting botox and skin tightening treatment are just a few of the services the gallery and spa offer.


Outside of our services, just being in the gallery and spa is enough to make you never want to leave. In the fitness center, you can take advantage of the complimentary refreshment bar that includes drinks, light snacks, trail mix and even wine.


Above the fitness center is a dim, relaxing, bohemian-style lounge area perfect for reading or a yoga session with friends, coworkers or bridal parties.

The Price of Art

 


So I have been pondering this for a while now and thought I would share. As a fellow artist and businessman, I’ve often wondered what was the most tangible way for artists to price their work. I’ve been around some cool artists and creative types and it seems that the first thing people want to know is how long it took to create the piece or provide a service; whatever it may be. But why would that matter right? When does the clock start? Does it start when you conceived of the idea? In which case the clock may have been running for weeks, months or years in some cases. Or does it start when you actually start the process of creating that actual piece or creative work in question?

So there’s the process of getting the materials, and then there's the point of actually putting the paint on the canvas or making that first chip on that piece of wood for sculpture or whatever. Oh wait! How about all the trial and error process that may have taken years that went into perfecting what you do today to create that piece of art in 20 minutes or 4 hours or 3 days. That part of the process is hard to quantify and even worse, difficult to get the average art collector or consumer to appreciate. When this art piece consumes you and it’s the last thing you think about before you go to sleep and the first thing when you wake up, what is that mind space worth? When you are editing those photographs and you want that perfect lighting to come through, what is that time worth? In surgery, the first cut of the skin with the scalpel is recorded as the start time from which everything flows thereafter. But remember all the pre-op and prep that went into the planning for your surgery? There are formulas by which the value of that surgery is hence calculated but why not the same for art or the creative process?

Picture this; you’re walking down the street and a burst of light or the bend in the curve of the road all of a sudden gives you so much inspiration that you go back to that piece of work and edit, embellish, or refine the work in question. What is that revision worth?

Allow me to make an analogy with food for example. Would you pay more for an “OK" meal that took 4 hours to prepare versus a “kick ass” meal that took 15 minutes? In essence, what I’m saying is, does the time that it took the artist really matter in how you value the work? When an artist has placed a monetary value on their work, they are taking into consideration all of those intangible things I just mentioned. So next time you are standing in front of a piece of work and you are questioning the value, think about the process and appreciate that the artist has spent a lot of value-added time to create that art to speak to your soul.
