Most artists will say that sharing their talent with others is what drives them to create art. Española resident and artist Monica Duran is no different. She feeds her creative need by making contemporary art pieces, using mixed media — and for the second time, she will share her artwork with the public in a show.
This time, it will be on exhibit at the Bond House Museum in Española. The show opens with a reception from 6-9 p.m. Friday and will be on display through Jan. 3.
Despite the fact that she enjoys making art, she’s not able to devote as much time as she’d like to create her pieces because she’s battling terminal cancer. The proceeds from selling her art will go toward her cancer foundation. She is in need of surgery that could save her life.
“I decided to show it (my art) because I felt in my spirit that it was time. I wanted other women to read my story and not give in to the illness,” Duran said. “I know first-hand that this can either make you or break you and I choose to fight to make it. Art is my passion and I love to create wonderful and beautiful things.”
