Join Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery to celebrate the second installment of an annual show that focuses on an artist, or artists response to living life with cancer.

This year, they are excited to announce a unique exhibition, focusing on the emotionally introspective work of Paula Ballo Dailey, whose untimely death to cancer in 2016 left a void for family, friends and art communities across the country. Paula’s extensive oeuvre of found object-mixed media sculpture, watercolors and selected journal entries will be on display.

This show will also feature selected works of acclaimed mixed media artist and Paula’s loving husband Brian Dailey, whose artworks serve as a response to his tragic loss.

TOGETHER will serve as a testament to the artistic dexterity and thoughtful understanding posessed by both Paula and Brian, while also exploring their lovingly creative marriage and subsequent roles of caregiving provided by one another.

All events are free to the public and white wine will be served. All sale proceeds of from this exhibition have been generously donated to Smith Center for Healing and the Arts & Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery by Brian Dailey.

The Joan Hisaoka Gallery is located at 1632 U Street NW. For more information visit www.smithcenter.org.
