Art de Cure Gallery is a collaboration between art and medicine, showcasing art in the community to benefit a cure.   Galleries are housed in medical practices and the work of regional artists is on display. The host practice chooses the charity that will benefit and Art de Cure curates the show.

The first Art de Cure Gallery resides at the office suite of The Endocrine Group, which specializes in diabetes care. Over half of the art for the event was sold in one evening, with subsequent sales raising over $12,000 for the ADA. The second event, held in April of 2011, raised over $25,000.

Imagine what we can raise for CMT with your contributions!
