The 12th annual “Art Celebrating the Cancer Journey” Cancer Art Show will be held at the Coupeville Arts Center on Saturday, March 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. An artists’ reception will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The artwork displayed is submitted by cancer survivors, caregivers and support persons, and professional care givers as a reflection of their journey and/or sharing how cancer has impacted their lives.
“It is an opportunity for the community to share, reflect, and celebrate with them,” said Trish Rose, Whidbey General Hospital spokeswoman.
The artists’ reception will be catered by the hospital’s West Wind Cafe. Lisa Toomey, an Oncology Certified Nurse from the hospital’s MAC Unit, will be performing various musical selections.
The show is organized by the Cancer Care Committee of Whidbey General Hospital but supported as well through the community. This program is also being made available through the collaboration of the Coupeville Art Center staff and monetary support from the Whidbey General Hospital Foundation.
