Artist Talk & Book Signing
Saturday, October 12th, 10:00 a.m.
HUDGENS CENTER FOR THE ARTS - FREE ADMISSION ALL DAY
The "Sal Brownfield" exhibition features 18 extraordinary portrait paintings by Brownfield accompanied by stories about the subjects, all breast cancer survivors.
A Peachtree Corners resident, Brownfield began with a series of paintings of breast cancer survivors, but as he worked with his subjects to create the paintings, he came to know the individuals and their powerful stories, and realized that their stories needed to be captured. Writer Eve Hoffman was brought in to interview each individual and began writing their stories, and the idea for a book, "A Celebration of Healing," was born.
The exhibit at the Hudgens will include the stories alongside the featured paintings, and the book will be available for purchase in the gift shop. As described by Hoffman, the book "is neither a cancer 'how to' guide nor a Hallmark card - rather a book giving permission to laugh, to cry, rage and to know one is not alone."
