…and here’s the press release:

Local artist launches Paint 4 The Cure to benefit cancer research

Brunswick artist Maria Castellano-Usery has come up with a way to have fun, create art, and give back. On Saturday, December 12th, instead of having a “standard” opening reception to celebrate her month-long art show at The Mix (53 Maine Street, Brunswick), Maria will be having a “Paint-a-Thon”, complete with a raffle featuring the finished painting as the prize.

Maria will set up her easel in the front window of The Mix and have a day-long “Paint-a-Thon” during business hours (10am to 6pm, roughly). Raffle tickets for the completed 8” x 8” acrylic painting will be sold both in person and online ($5 each, 3 for $10) with the winning ticket being drawn at the close of business on Saturday, December 12th. Maria will be donating 50% of the proceeds from ticket sales to the National Foundation for Cancer Research’s Play4theCure. Additionally, 10% of all Maria’s art sales from her December show at The Mix (excluding magnets) will be donated to the NFCR Play4TheCure program.

This idea came about when Maria asked, “If athletes can ‘Play4theCure,’ then why couldn’t artists ‘Paint4theCure’? Why couldn’t musicians ‘Play4theCure’?” Food, refreshments, and live music will add to Saturday’s festivities. If you are a musician and would like to play one or more short sets during the event, please contact Maria directly before December 5th.

This is the first of a series of “Paint-a-Thon” events where Maria will be working with other local businesses and various charities that are meaningful to her. If you are interested in creating a future collaboration, please email maria@brushstrokesbymaria.com
