International artist, photographer and writer Tatiana von Tauber presents a breast cancer awareness art project which invites patients and survivors to paint a work of art that will be auctioned off for charity. "The Art Cure" art opening is scheduled for Oct. 1, 2010, 5pm-9pm at Horizon Gallery, Savannah GA. The Art Cure will support charity but one of its primary goals is to support breast cancer patients and survivors through the introduction of art therapy. Survivors often end up feeling less than positive once their treatment is over. Stress, finances and the experience take its toll. Art can help expend, focus and relieve built up energy as it provides a medium for emotions that have no words. While the doctors work on the body, the patient has no choice but to work on her emotional self. Art speaks when the spirit has been provoked and heals when it has been let loose on a canvas. The Art Cure’s foundational concept was built on the introduction of this “letting loose” on a canvas philosophy and will be explored during the painting sessions scheduled August 15th & 22nd. What the patients and survivors create will be sold for charity donation.
