October, 2011...The Silver Circle Gallery in Putnam, CT is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibit "The 3rd Annual Women's Show: a Breast Cancer Benefit,"on display from October 5 - 30, 2011. The opening reception, Friday October 7th, 2011 from 6-8pm, is a free event that will allow the public to view the artwork and meet the artists.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month--the perfect time to honor women and men who have courageously battled the disease and to support causes that may help save lives. Breast cancer affects hundreds of thousands a year in our country alone, but touches everyone in some way. The close-knit community in northeastern Connecticut is no exception.

Inspired by many friends and family member's diagnoses, owner Carly Martin felt passionate about spearheading a cause so personal and yet so widespread. "This is my chance to give back and help others who may not have the resources to detect and treat breast cancer. I want to turn awareness into a hands-on effort that directly impacts lives in our area."

Again this year a percentage of the sales from the exhibit will be donated to Day Kimball Hospital Deary Memorial Cancer Fund, which supports local women and men's mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies, surgeries, lab tests, oncology therapies, and education for aspiring radiographers. 

This year Silver Circle Gallery is proud to present eighteen local and regional female artists who have created artwork exploring issues pertaining to life as a woman, many of them touched by breast cancer in some way. This year's show has a wide range of visual art that includes drawings, paintings, photography,   sculpture, multi -media and conceptual work.
