Voices & Visions

Standing on the Bridge Between Health and Disease

August 24-October 4, 2018 

Opening Reception: August 31, 5:30-7:30pm 

Art that will express how cancer can be a metaphor both literally and symbolically. The Artists work will address the many issues pertaining to cancer, from facing our mortality to finding strength. Whether a survivor, caregiver, or just someone in someway that has been touched by cancer or the fear of it, we are looking for art that helps us to find meaning, and put into context how pain and suffering can lead to empowerment and healing.

Voices and Visions VI honors Jackie Sabath:
‘Back Up Against a Wall, but Moving Forward’ was Jackie’s last piece before entering the hospital. She wrote,
“I have painted with oils for 40 years but this is my first acrylic painting.
My world is in black & white while dealing with my blood disease ….
Edged my canvas with red to reflect my feelings.
The black background was the diagnosis.
White is the light at the end of the tunnel.
I am backed up against a brick wall, but I am moving forward.”

Guest Juror: Caren Helene Rudman has been an artist and curator for over 25 years. She exhibits locally in Chicago and Nationally since 1992, after receiving her MA from NYU/ ICP a prestigious 56 credit program affiliated with the International Center of Photography. Since 2010, she has curated this biennial exhibition and with the sponsorship from Medline, a Chicago based medical supply company, the 2010 exhibit traveled nationally to affiliated cancer centers across the county. Her curatorial goals have been to build the conversation around how art has the ability to heal both the individual as well as the community.
