Cancer Survivors share Stories Through Art at Canopy
On October 24, 2019, Canopy Cancer Survivorship Center hosted “Canopy Expressions: Stories Through Art” featuring an art gallery showcasing artwork from several brave cancer patients and survivors.
The Art Therapy program at Canopy is designed to help those affected by cancer cope with the cognitive, emotional, behavioral and social changes they may experience. Under the direction of Olimpia Petzold-Rodriguez, an Art Therapy Specialist and Teacher of Canopy’s Art Therapy Program, the women and men gather twice a month to paint or create pieces of art together. The art show is held annually at Canopy to highlight the beautiful artwork produced by the program.
The event also honored Lori Winston, a guest of Canopy, participant of the Art Therapy program, and “for those of you who knew her, was such a bright light and a fighter,” shared Amanda Poole, Canopy’s Manager.
Beverages and light bites were served while family, friends, and supporters enjoyed beautiful expressions of art. Twelve pieces of art were for sale from the showcase. All proceeds will be reinvested into the programs at Canopy.
Canopy Cancer Survivorship Center is the first-of-its-kind cancer survivorship center in Montgomery County, offering a wide variety of programs and services to address the emotional, physical and social needs of those touched by cancer.
