18 artists. 90 minutes. We were challenged with painting from start to finish in a short amount of time while patrons watched and placed silent bids on our work all to raise support for the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center. I was honored to be chosen for the first Patron’s Choice Award and to have my work on permanent display in the cancer center. It was an absolute joy to be able to honor my mother’s memory and those who cared for her. While she did not have cancer, she received her care at UAB.
