Exhibit Explores Healing Power of Creating Artwork

LOS ANGELES--An exhibit featuring works by five women artists who have lived with cancer was displayed in conjunction with the 1998 Oncology Nursing Society and ASCO meetings.

Novartis Oncology sponsored the exhibit, entitled Medicine Cures the Body, Art Heals the Spirit, along with The Creative Center for Women With Cancer, a New York-based nonprofit organization founded on a belief in the healing power of creative activity. The exhibit is part of Novartis’ Living With Cancer initiative, which provides support to cancer patients, their families, and friends.

The artists include Lise Poirier (Figure1); photographer Susan B. Markisz; Robin Glazer, art director for The Creative Center; Susan Shatter, whose work is on display at the Art Institute of Chicago and other museums; and sculptor Leonda Finke (Figure 2).
