SUMMIT, NJ - Pathways, a program of The Connection for Women and Families, hosts the 8th annual “Art in Autumn” exhibit honoring women cancer survivors.  A wine and cheese reception on Sept. 17th from 6:30 to 8pm will kick off the event.  Artists will be available for conversation and the public is invited to attend this free event.

36 pieces of artwork created by both novice and professional survivor/artists will be on display at The Connection, 79 Maple Street, from mid September until late October in celebration of ovarian and breast cancer awareness months.  The collection includes acrylic, pastels, watercolors, oil paintings, zentangles, and photography.

“Through art, women can find relief from the physical and emotional challenges of cancer treatment and its aftermath, and may achieve a sense of peace through the exploration of creative outlets,” states Gerri Madsen, Pathways Administrative Assistant. Pathways offers a variety of ways to help women heal during and after cancer treatment.
