The Art of Healing

This exhibition – curated by Regina Held – is very close to home for the New Mexico Cancer Center, as it showcases artists who have survived cancer and those who have been impacted by cancer in their families. We are featuring a wide variety of styles and genres from traditional painting to some amazing quilt and batic art. A lot of work in this show is calm and meditative while some burst with life and energy. 40% of all sales directly benefit non-medical needs of our cancer patients.
