The Art Cure: Call For Works [102]

Tatiana von Tauber, an ABAD artist has written about a new project she's launched, The Art Cure, a silent auction art call for Breast Cancer awareness. 

The Art Cure is a breast cancer awareness art project which invited breast cancer patients and survivors to spend a day this August painting with me, international artist Tatiana von Tauber while I document their experience for a book, “The Art Cure Diaries.”  The artwork produced during this session will be up for a month long silent auction during October 2010.

The call for participants elicited very warm responses from a number of non-local artists who had never had breast cancer, but who wished to donate art to project. After discussion, The Art Cure’s Advisory Board and I decided to invite the international community of artists as well as non-local breast cancer survivors/patients to donate one work of art to The Art Cure.  All proceeds from the silent auction will be divided between Young Survival Coalition Savannah Affiliate and Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Coastal Georgia Affiliate with 50% going to each organization. 

The Art Cure blog ( will showcase all artwork available for bidding while the originals are exhibited October 1-29, 2010 at Horizon Gallery, 206 E. Bay Street, Savannah, GA, 31401, 912-324-3232.

The Art Cure opening gala is October 1, 2010 from 5:00-9:00pm.  The public opening will be Sunday, October 3rd from 3-6pm.  The Art Cure closing is October 29th from 5-9 pm where winners and final proceeds will be announced.
