Our featured gallery this month is Gallery with a Cause! From their website: When the New Mexico Cancer Center was initially constructed in 2001, one of the primary design goals was to surround patients and staff with beauty and light. So, the center was constructed as a living art gallery as well as a medical facility, filled with stunning, high-quality art, many created by local artists, with new exhibits every three months. We are extremely fortunate to have Regina Held, a greatly respected and very knowledgeable member of the New Mexico art community, as our gallery curator.

The art also is an integral part of the philanthropic efforts of the New Mexico Cancer Center Foundation, dedicated to supporting patients coping with the non-medical costs of having cancer and other life-disrupting illnesses. In addition to financial assistance, part of our mission is to make the experience of being treated at the New Mexico Cancer Center as supportive and warm as possible.
You will be able to view the current exhibition "Movers & Shakers -- Artists Who Teach, Lead, and Inspire", here. The show runs from August 23rd through November 19th, 2021. Due to current COVID-19 precautions, the gallery will not be holding an opening for the show. Please contact Regina Held at regina@artfullivingstyle.com or 505.803.3345 for a private viewing!

Forty-percent of the proceeds of all of your purchases are a tax-deductible contribution to the NMCC Foundation, an important part of the grants given to NMCC patients to help them with their living expenses during their treatment.

"Movers & Shakers" features 385 pieces by a talented group of artists who give back to the community and still manage to have thriving art careers. These tireless artists volunteer for art organizations, teach classes, operate galleries, and support good causes. Participating artists include: Donna Aldrich, Tim Anderson, Janet Bothne, Dorothy Bunny Bowen, Linda Boyes, Alexandra Dell’ Amore, Marlies Diels, Woody Duncan, Steven Fresquez, Jane Fritz, Glenn Hohnstreiter, Alex Kurtz, Ann Hart Marquis, William Monthan, Mary Perkins, Jonathan Reeve Price, Mary Sweet. Peggy Trigg, Alice Webb.

If you are an artist and would like to submit art to the Gallery With A Cause for a future exhibition, you may now easily submit your information online, or directly contact their curator, Regina Held.
