What “more birthdays” means to me: It means more laughter and more joy in the world.

The American Cancer Society has been running their “Official Sponsor of Birthdays” motto for several years now. I love this idea. Truly, what is better than celebrating each and every birthday and a gift that we are able to receive. My own grandmother has been able to celebrate 102 and of them. Imagine that. Every year that we are cancer free, healthy, and happy should be a year filled with gratitude, beauty… and, of course, fine art.

And now, you can buy art and support cancer research. Great idea, no? At you can select art or music for purchase, and make a simultaneous donation to the American Cancer Society.  Some of the art, music, and birthday greetings are even free. It’s a win-win. The American Cancer Society has been part of nearly every cancer research breakthrough. To learn more about their research accomplishments and milestones, click here.

At Gallery MAR, we consistently strive to support our community and non-profits here in Park City. It is our goal at Gallery MAR to host at least one nonprofit event in the gallery each month. We open our space to nonprofit organizations to host fundraisers, awareness evenings, discussions and talks, and patron thank-you parties. We are proud to be able to assist: Swaner EcoCenter, Recycle Utah, HEAL Utah, Image Reborn, Newcomers of Park City, Arts Kids, The Park City Performing Arts Foundation, Park City Film Series, and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts.

Gallery MAR recently sponsored a runner in the MS Mud Run here in Utah. Take a look at this mussy T-shirt shot…

Please contact the gallery to host your own event.
