Portraits of cancer survivors requested

(Adapted from press release. Please contact Nancy Raia with questions.)

Eastern Shore Art Center in Fairhope, Alabama is looking for Cancer survivors for an upcoming exhibit to benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation

F.A.C.E.S.  Face All Cancer, Emerge with Strength!

To participate:
Send in an image of the survivor (no larger than 8” by 10”). Images can be photographs (copies are fine), or a copy of a piece of art that portrays the survivors face. Survivors can be of all ages, any geographic area: we want to see them all! Even a grandchild’s crayon drawing of the survivor can work! 

No framed pieces, please. Items mailed in will not be returned, as we are expecting a large volume, and hope to travel the show. All Images must be marked with the following information: Name of survivor, What they survived, and Words that got them through it.

Mail them to: F.A.C.E.S. Show/ Eastern Shore Art Center, 401 Oak Street, Fairhope AL, 36532. Participating in the show includes permission to photograph the images on display for media purposes to further the cause.

F.A.C.E.S. premieres the week of October 8th, at the Eastern Shore Art Center. It will be up for three weeks.

Susan Harrell, a survivor who won a spot at the Lance Armstrong Summit last October, came back with a resolve to show the many people who have been through the battle, using art as the method to get the message across. This show is to honor those united in the cause to help find a cure, those who have been through the battle, or currently undergoing it. Each face will reflect the emotions, the strength to get through it, the courage and the depth of the journey.
