An Art Auction to Honor Cancer Survivors and Caregivers
VIDART 03 On behalf of the Nueva Vida Board of Directors and staff, we welcome you to the third edition of VIDART. This edition includes 93 artworks by 41 artists from 10 different countries. Proceeds from the auction will help Nueva Vida provide free cancer support services for medically underserved Latinas throughout Baltimore, MD, and the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan area. A work of art is an expression of the artist’s soul and in its contemplation, one experiences an uplifting effect that heals. For this reason, in Nueva Vida, we believe in the healing power of art and are pleased to present pieces that will increase one’s awareness and capacity for positive transformation.
NUEVA VIDA FOUNDING MEMBERS
Gloria Elliott, Elmer Huerta y Lidia Carnota.
Nueva Vida was founded in 1999 to provide cancer support services among the medically underserved Latino community in need of equitable access to state-of-the-art cancer care and survivorship support in the Washington, D.C., and Baltimore metropolitan areas. Thousands of Latinas have benefitted from the organization’s services that run seamlessly through the cancer continuum, namely: outreach/education, preventive cancer screening, patient navigation, and psychosocial and mental health support services. During the last two years, Nueva Vida has navigated the uncharted waters of COVID-19 by following its true north, compassion! This guiding principle prompted the organization to expand its services by providing much-needed food, Coronavirus education, and greater mental health support services to our survivors. Yet, Nueva Vida has also been challenged because medical providers closed their offices and stopped operating at 2019 capacity, leaving the organization with at least 150 women who could not receive screening mammograms because this was an elective procedure! Even now, some providers are not operating at pre-pandemic capacity. Cancer screenings save lives, and by supporting VIDART, you will help us get women screened.
DEDICATION This VIDART Art Auction and Digital Catalog is a homage to all cancer survivors, especially the Latina women served by Nueva Vida, and those that have been infected or perished as a result of Coronavirus. Our souls are nourished by the survivors’ endurance, strength, resiliency, hope and their victories offer daily inspiration to Nueva Vida.

HELEN FREDERICK JEREMY FLICK American artist Jeremy Flick’s sculptural canvases are characterized by minimalist and abstract strategies, formal precision, approach to form, and strong command of color. Flick’s practice is rooted in painting traditions but is also heavily impacted by digital innovations influencing how we think about, understand, and experience images, forms, and colors. Through repetition, symmetry/asymmetry, and overlapping geometric shapes, Flick’s minimal compositions evoke multiple depths and perspectives, allowing for various interpretations and meanings. Recent exhibitions include Brentwood Arts Exchange in Brentwood, Maryland, HEMPHILL in Washington, D.C., ‘sindikit, Baltimore, Maryland, and Marymount University, Arlington, Virginia. His works are included in numerous private and public collections, including The Silva, Washington, D.C.; PwC, Washington, D.C.; Hogan Lovells, Washington, D.C.; Inova Schar Cancer Institute, Fairfax, Virginia; The Hotel at the University

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Organizing an art auction event with a reception and musical intermission is a daunting challenge unless you have outstanding partners, collaborators and friends. We have been honored to count as partners the Embassy of Mexico and the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, DC.

We want to sincerely thank all the participating artists who are donating a portion of the sales to benefit Nueva Vida cancer survivors, this event would not be possible without their talent, passion and inspiration.
