ACS features the Benedum on this year's holiday card

 

November 6, 2007



For the tenth straight year, Pittsburgh's own, artist Linda Barnicott, is joining the American Cancer Society to support its annual holiday card promotion. This year, Mrs. Barnicott captures the spirit of Pittsburgh with her latest in a series of cards for the American Cancer Society: A Snowy Night at the Benedum.

A Snowy Night at the Benedum is the tenth in a series of holiday cards that she has created for the American Cancer Society. The card has been created exclusively for the American Cancer Society, with all proceeds to benefit the Western Pennsylvania Region. This winter scene depicts Pittsburgh's Cultural District, with the Benedum at its heart and the Nutcracker Ballet as the highlight of the season.

Mrs. Barnicott, known for her depictions of downtown landmarks as well as features of Kennywood Park, began her career as a portrait artist. She is a native of Eddington, PA, a small town northeast of Philadelphia, but has lived in Pittsburgh for the past 26 years. Mrs. Barnicott is probably best known for one of her best selling subjects, Features of Kennywood Park.

A Snowy Night at the Benedum is available for a donation of $24 for one to three boxes; $22 for four to nine boxes; and $20 for ten or more boxes. All boxes contain 25 cards. Imprinting is also available for orders of 4 boxes or more for an additional charge.

In addition, local award-winning artist James M. Sulkowski offers It's a Wonderful Life, to benefit the American Cancer Society, Washington County Unit. It's a Wonderful Life, the 11th in a series of holiday cards offered by the American Cancer Society depicts Canonsburg in the late 1940's when the Alhambra Theater was featuring It's a Wonderful Life.

Donation for this card is $20 for a box of 25. All cards can also include a personalized imprint for an additional cost. In addition, a limited number of 16"x20" prints are available for $95.
