Local Art Show at UPH Features Works of Patients and Caregivers

SARATOGA SPRINGS — This year’s “Art with Heart & Hope” will take place 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 8 at Universal Preservation Hall.

Now in its fourth year, “Art with Heart & Hope” is a pop-up exhibition and celebration of patients and caregivers who channel complex feelings into expressive creations, using their craft to cope with the many challenges of life with illness or disability. 

“Art with Heart & Hope” combines the healing power of art with the equally powerful component of storytelling. Works are displayed alongside written statements from the artists, who share the ways art helps them move beyond their personal battles with illness or disability. It is an evening of inspiration, awareness, and community partnered with food, drink, live music, and exciting raffles. 

Tickets can be purchased online at BeyondMyBattle.org/tickets for $48, or at the door for $50. All proceeds benefit Beyond My Battle, a Saratoga-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit helping people reduce the stress of illness and disability. To learn more about BMB, visit BeyondMyBattle.org.
