Art Opening Benefit for Hospice

Press Release

May 20, 2005 – Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina (NC) - Silver Coast Winery at Ocean Isle Beach 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.

A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the art will benefit Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter, which provides professional health care and comfort to people with life-limiting illness and offers hope, support, and education.

Silver Coast Winery, located just 15 minutes from the beach in a woodland setting, is a full winemaking facility that offers wine-tasting of their internationally award winning wines, winery tours, eclectic art gallery, unique gift shops, and beautiful picnic grounds.
