The second annual Canvases for a Cause will take place at the Gallery at Firehouse Square in New London. This time, the event will feature an exclusive, one-day-only maritime-themed art exhibition and sale featuring local and national artists. In addition to the art, visitors can enjoy a wine tasting, brunch, and the guitar music of Mystic's Tommy Giarrantano. The event will benefit L&M Hospital's new Cancer Center, as well as Sails Up 4 Cancer, a foundation that uses sailing-themed events to raise money for cancer treatment and research.
