MORE WONDERS

This is a very beautiful and meaningful piece from the exhibit. It was created using all kinds of mixed media starting with a swimsuit form. There is even grass (faux I'm sure!). This piece was created by Nancy Kimerly and is sure to illicit a powerful response. Please stop in and have a look.

A GREAT OPENING!


Crowds all day for the opening reception of ART WONDERS: Inspiration for Healing. Rain couldn't stop this bunch! Many of the patients/artist participants from San Diego Cancer Research Institute were there and brought friends and family. Throw in great food and live music by Clay Colton and a wonderful day was had by all. All of the work was created by patients with cancer and caregivers (and even staff and volunteers!). While the topic is serious and involves peoples' lives, the room energy and the exhibit are uplifting. Please stop in to take a look!
