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.

Seeing Green: An Exhibition of Botanical Art

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

On view at THE GALLERY AT THE CONNECTICUT CANCER FOUNDATION                15 North Main Street, Old Saybrook, CT

12 September to 25 November 2019

A selling exhibition of a stunning selection of Botanical Art by some of the most important American artists of this genre will be featured at
Connecticut Cancer Foundation’s Art Gallery beginning on 12 September. This exhibition, juried by Marsha Malinowski of Malinowski & Associates, Fine Art Advisory, brings together the best examples of Botanical Art in varied mediums by some of the most respected artists in this field. Come in and view extraordinary renderings of nature as summer makes way to autumn.

The artists featured in this exhibition are: Kelly Radding (CT), Jeanne Reiner (CT), Jeanette Compton (CT), Carol Woodin (NY), Gaye Grossman NY), Anastasia Traina (NY), Jean Emmons (WA), Monika de Vries Gohlke (NY), Carrie Di Costanzo (NJ), Cristine Piane (FL) and Deb Shaw (CA). Malinowski explains: “When I learned there had never been an exhibition exclusively devoted to Botanical Art in the area, I thought that needed to change. People live here because of the natural beauty of the area so Botanical Art should resonate with so many.”

This sale exhibition is organized and curated by Marsha Malinowski of Malinowski & Associates, Fine Art Advisory. This exhibition is the fifth to be presented in the beautiful CCF Gallery. A portion of all sales will be donated to the Connecticut Cancer Foundation.
