Gallery with a Cause is located in the New Mexico Cancer Center and comprises all public areas in the 20.000 square foot Center. The presence of art on the walls is one of the many ways the New Mexico Cancer Center distinguishes itself from other institutions of its kind. Exhibitions are curated by Regina Held - the former owner of Matrix Fine Art and New Grounds Print Workshop & Gallery - and change every three months. They feature about 300 pieces by 25 New Mexico artists. The purpose of the gallery is two-fold: The founders of the Center strongly believe in the healing and uplifting attributes of original art invest in these exhibitions to improve patient's healing and staff morale. In addition, art sales go directly to the NM Cancer Center Foundation who raises funds to alleviate non-medical needs for cancer patients. 40 % of each art sale goes to the Foundation and is tax-deductible.
