Closing Reception: Saturday, May 5 from 7pm to 9pm

Join Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery and Smith Center for Healing and the Arts to celebrate our annual ALCHEMICAL VESSELS benefit and exhibition, now in its 6th year.

This year’s show is based on the theme: OUR COMMON THREAD – 116 artists will create a unique piece of art from a simple circular panel, responding to the artist’s personal, transformative, creative journey through the universal truths of pain, joy healing and living.

Not only does your generous purchase of a standard benefit ticket allow you to own a unique piece of art from some of the finest artists in the DMV and enjoy a lovely night of music and food, but all proceeds help fund Smith Center for Healing and the Arts, the only independent cancer support center based in Washington, DC. Our mission is to develop and promote healing practices that explore physical, emotional, and mental wellness and lead to life-affirming changes to those affected by cancer.

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