Substance of Venom New single channel video work, 2022 (video still) by artist Cherie Sampson

The Smith Center for Healing and the Arts will be hosting an in-person art workshop in collaboration with the current exhibition, every.single.one: art, cancer, and transformation, on display at the gallery! “every.single.one” became the title for a body of creative works developed since 2017 by Cherie Sampson that document and depict personal, familial and community experiences with hereditary breast cancer. Works from the project include video art and short
films, soundscapes, photographs, montages and an additional live performance that will be performed in the beginning of August. We invite you to experience the exhibition in its entirety during our Gallery Art Workshop. Following the exhibition viewing, participants will engage in a reflective art exercise. In this art
space, you will be able to utilize different mediums to create your own work of art inspired by the show. Participants are free to create in their own way.

If you have been touched by cancer in some way, we invite you to join us for this workshop.
