[Saratoga Springs, NY:] If you are an artist living with or caring for someone living with a rare disease, illness, or disability, this is a great opportunity to share your art. Saratoga-based nonprofit, Beyond My Battle, is holding its fourth annual “Art with Heart & Hope” showcasing the ways art can help manage the many stressors of living as a patient or caregiver.

The deadline to submit artwork is July 1, 2022. All art must be able to be displayed on a wall or easel. Artists must have lived with, or cared for someone living with, a physical illness, disease, or disability; be at least 18 years old; and live in the Capital Region. Artists should submit their information and work at beyondmybattle.org/art-show-2022 by July 1st. Artists have the option to price their artwork and donate a portion of the sale to Beyond My Battle or not price their artwork at all.
