Local Artist Donates Art for Cancer Resource Center
A reception for artist Janel Jefferson was held by the Lee County Area Cancer Resource Center on Wednesday of last week along with a drawing for a painting called “Hope”. The painting was an entry in the Creative Cups for the Cause Art Bra Contest conducted by the Lee County Cancer Center and dedicated to the memory of and in honor of all those diagnosed with breast cancer.
The winner Donna K. Witman was overwhelmed with surprise and joy at winning the beautiful painting. She is still talking about winning today with all her friends. Donna is a long time friend of Charles Etta Francis and an avid supporter of cancer awareness and support.
The artist, Janel Jefferson, was originally from Lee County and now residing in California, she uses color, texture and form to create captivatingly haunting portraits that lend a glimpse into the past.
