SUMMIT, NJ - Twenty-three pieces of art -- created by both novice and professional artists who are all survivors -- are further brightening The Connection's hallways as Pathways debuts the 10th Annual 'Art in Autumn' exhibit. The works are on display through October in celebration of ovarian and breast cancer awareness months.

A public wine and cheese reception will be held on Thursday, October 3, from 6:30 - 8 p.m. to kick-off the event, with artists available for conversation. The collection includes pastels, watercolors, oil paintings, canvas, paper mosaics and photography. The artwork is for sale with artists generously donating a percentage of the proceeds to benefit Pathways.

Pathways provides direct services to women with cancer, is committed to empowering women to recognize their strengths, and encourages them to make choices that enable them to become their own self-care advocates.

“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,” said Lesley Andrews, Pathways Director.

Pathways, a program of The Connection, provides an oasis of hope for women with cancer. For 25 years, Pathways’ mission has remained the same:  to provide support, education and wellness programs, free-of-charge, for women with cancer, creating a community in which shared experiences lead to personal growth and healing.
