UK HealthCare Patient Fulfills Lifelong Dream with Solo Art Exhibit
When Michael Marler, 58, was diagnosed with a brain tumor, his work became his therapy. A lifelong painter and carver, Marler, a UK HealthCare patient who has received care at Markey Cancer Center and the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute, used art therapy as his "go-to" method of coping as his disease progressed.
Now a hospice patient, Marler will see his life's dream of a solo exhibit come to fruition thanks to the efforts of Hospice of the Bluegrass and the Junior League of Lexington. "Up in Arms: the Art of Michael Marler" will take place 4 to 7 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 15, at the Bodley Bullock House in Gratz Park. In accordance with Marler's wishes, proceeds from any works sold that day will be donated to Hospice of the Bluegrass. Read the UKNOW article.
