This month in the Sara Smith Self Gallery:

Zondra Harris: The Faces of Cancer

Zondra Harris, a Biscoe native, is not your normal artist. She actually came from the business industry as a Accounting Professor and owner of Harris and Butler Accounting and Tax Services. In 2018, while going through chemotherapy, she found herself falling in love with painting as a way to keep her mind off of her cancer. After chemotherapy, she continued to paint and now explores different realms of painting

 She states, “she wants her artwork to be unique and original, leaving the observer with a deep thought.”  She is calling this exhibit The Face of Cancer which is the name she gave herself while going through her ordeal. She want others living with cancer to have hope and to know they can beat cancer. Her motto was ” Cancer will not win.” This is why her exhibit is full of bright colors and powerful displays. She has paintings that touch on the darker side of cancer also. If you want to see more of her works, you can visit her website and on facebook at zondraharrisphotography. She is currently working on a book called Think Anew coming out in June for those fighting cancer or other battles in life. She is also working on a children book that will help children learn more about cancer and how to live with family members that are living with cancer.
