Call for Artists Open for Arts in Health Care Events

Local artists are invited to support a worthwhile cause while showcasing their creative work by donating pieces to the inaugural Art for the Cause fundraiser event in September.

Hosted by Samaritan Health Services’ ArtsCare Program, proceeds from Art for the Cause will support the program’s activities centering on those whose lives have been touched by cancer. This includes art at the bedside, live music in care spaces, Saturday Art Workshops, HeartStrings interactive harp concerts as well as other activities like National Cancer Survivors Day.

The original artworks will be on display and available for purchase during the Art for the Cause event on Saturday, Sept. 23, from 6 to 8 p.m., at Samaritan Pastega Regional Cancer Center in Corvallis.

The artwork will also be promoted on the Samaritan Health Services ArtsCare webpage

All sales will be donated 100% in support of the ArtsCare Program.
