With the holiday season fast approaching, some of you may be looking to secure a position on Santa’s “Nice” list for this year. Artist Doyle Glass offers a perfect opportunity at this weekend’s benefit, where an anonymous donor’s matching gift gets you twice the karmic bang for your buck. The collection of oil paintings, a departure from Glass’ usual sculpture, includes landscape, still life and figure pieces, all drawn from Glass’ experiences as his wife battled Stage III breast cancer. “Painting this collection has helped me battle my wife’s cancer indirectly,” he explains. “I am not a doctor and I can’t battle the disease directly. By using art, I can help cancer patients locally win their individual battles.” All proceeds go to benefit the James Graham Brown Cancer Center, which Glass calls “a jewel in our community” and whom he credits in large part for his wife’s current remission. —Jennifer Harlan
