“Artfully Small – The Gift of Art”

Group Exhibit/Sale and Benefit for Dana Farber Cancer Institute

November 2 – December 31 2017 Woodruff’s Art Center will exhibit “Artfully Small – The Gift of Art”. This exhibit features 25+ artists and is a benefit for Dana Farber Cancer Institute in honor of Cynthia Cruz who is battling cancer.

The purchase of a small work of art not only proves to be a meaningful gift, but it provides support to the artist and the charity. There is a 12×12 maximum size which makes for an excellent opportunity to obtain affordable works from fine artists, just in time for the holidays. In addition to original paintings in various mediums, there are also wire sculptures, blown glass, pottery, jewelry, cards, and many unique treasures.

Cynthia (Cindy) Cruz of East Falmouth is a well-known and loved fine artist, teacher, and friend who was diagnosed with lung cancer and underwent treatment at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. “This journey that I’m on was my greatest fear, but has turned into my greatest blessing because of all the people who have helped me along the way, especially all of the caregivers of Dana Farber,” shared Cindy. One of the wonderful self-healing therapies that Cindy has discovered is sketching her various caregivers’ hands in charcoal. The series of drawings are very moving and will be on display throughout the show.

Woodruff’s Art Center will donate 10% of its proceeds from the exhibit sales to Dana Farber Cancer Institute and many of the participating artists will also contribute a portion of their commissions. Jewelry artist Anne Parshall has generously donated a beautiful necklace complosed of blown glass and freshwatter pearls to be raffled off at the end of the exhibit with 100% of the raffle ticket sales donated to Dana Farber.

Woodruff’s Art Center is opened Mondays through Saturdays, 9 AM – 5 PM, and on Sundays from 11 AM – 5 PM. For directions and information, visit www.woodruffsartcenter.com.
