Opening Night Reception

Diagnosis of cancer is always a shock. While cancer is becoming a disease of the modern world, it can have devastating physical and emotional consequences that change one’s actions and attitudes forever.

The artists in this exhibition have regarded cancer as an inevitable part of life’s path and allowed their cancer and treatment to guide their art. Using ancient and modern techniques and materials each artist offers their very personal interpretation and reaction to their experience. This aesthetic and emotional processing not only helps each artist to understand their situation and path but through viewing of the works others may find a way to understand the journey from crisis to wellness.

Featuring works by:
Richard Zeid
Nancy VanKanegan
Michael F Gallagher
Barbara Youngquist
