Art Opening Benefit for Hospice

presents “Art for Well Being,” an art opening by watercolor artist
and cancer survivor Ann Bancroft, 5 to 7 p.m. June 4 and noon to 2
p.m. June 5.
Ann Bancroft began working on
inspirational watercolors since she was first diagnosed with cancer.
She says, “This art is about how I choose to face my illness. I
paint instead of taking pain medication.” She also says, “Cancer
changed who I am and how I deal with things. My life is richer. In
so many ways, cancer came as a gift to me.”
Ann graduated with a degree in
art education from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, completed
coursework at the University of South Florida, and received a Getty
grant at New College in Sarasota. She has been an art educator for
many years and currently teaches at Montgomery College in Maryland.
