Art Program


The Connecticut Cancer Foundation Fine Arts Program

The Connecticut Cancer Foundation Fine Arts Program was founded in 2015 with the purpose of raising awareness for the visual arts as well as generating support for the Foundation’s mission through the curation and sponsorship of public exhibitions, gala fundraising events as well as the donation of artwork from benefactors to the permanent collection of the Connecticut Cancer Foundation. The art will be exhibited and viewed by cancer patients and those affected by cancer for aesthetic and therapeutic experiences.

The Connecticut Cancer Foundation Fine Art Board is led by a formal subcommittee of three art world professionals possessing significant credentials and affiliations with Sotheby’s, the Smithsonian Institution, the Library of Congress, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston among others.

The Fine Arts Program is accepting corporate and individual donations of fine art to benefit the Foundation’s mission. Please contact CCF’s Executive Director for a confidential discussion.

Current Exhibit

WILLIAM TERNES: New England Impressionist

Curated by Marsha Malinowski of Malinowski & Associates, Fine Art Advisory


26 November 2018 to 5 January 2019

A fine selection of over forty oils and watercolors by New England Impressionist, William Ternes will fill Connecticut Cancer Foundation’s Art Gallery for the holiday season. Ternes began his career as a watercolorist becoming a signature member of the New England Watercolor Society and the American Watercolor Society. His oil paintings of later years retained the sparkle of his watercolors, rendered in the layered depth that oils allow. His love of color and the natural world animated his work, mostly all painted plein air until the very last years of his life.

This sale exhibition is organized and curated by Marsha Malinowski of Malinowski & Associates, Fine Art Advisory. An opening Reception and Gallery Discussion, open to the public, will be held on 29 November from 6-8pm. This exhibition is the second to be presented in the new CCF Gallery. Malinowski has long admired the artistic output of Ternes. “The beauty and serenity embodied in each of his works is nothing short of inspiring. This will be the first time such a comprehensive group of his works will be exhibited in one space. It’s a privilege to introduce the work of William Ternes to the CCF gallery and to this area of Connecticut,” said Ms. Malinowski who has close ties to the artist’s family.

William Ternes (1933 – 2014) was educated at the University of Wisconsin and Columbia University where he received a B.S. degree in Art Education and an MBA respectively. He has studied at both the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Massachusetts College of Art. Ternes’ paintings have been included in various exhibitions sponsored by the American Watercolor Society, Allied Artists, Audubon Artists, National Arts Club, and Salmagundi Club. He is a member of The Guild of Boston Artists, the Copley Society, and The New England Watercolor Society. In 2007, he was voted into the American Watercolor Society. His work is represented in a number of fine art galleries and has been collected internationally, including the Governor and Mrs. Peter Penfold of Tortola, British Virgin Islands where his paintings are on display at the Governor’s official residence. Corporate collections include Bank of America, John Hancock and Transco Corporation. Ternes also led trips and classes in Harbour Island and Lyford Cay, Bahamas, Spain, France and Ireland.

A portion of all sales will be donated to the Connecticut Cancer Foundation.
