Artist: Barbra Turrin
Artist: EJ Davis

SUMMIT, NJ - The 9th annual “Art in Autumn," an exhibit honoring women cancer survivors, will again be hosted by Pathways, a program of The Connection.. A public wine and cheese reception September 22, from 6:30 - 8 p.m., will kick off the event, with artists available for conversation.

Thirty-four 34 pieces of artwork, created by both novice and professional survivor / artists, will be on display from mid-September until late October in celebration of ovarian and breast cancer awareness months. The collection includes pastels, watercolors, oil paintings, canvas, paper mosaics 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 Lesley Andrews, Pathways Director. Pathways offers a variety of ways to help women heal during and after cancer treatment.
