Savannah artists and art professors band together in the hopes of relieving some of the financial burdens that art professor Sherran Deems is facing while battling cancer. Several of her friends and co-workers who teach drawing in the foundationʼs department at SCAD have decided to throw an art auction and exhibition hoping to raise enough funds to help Sherran pay for chemotherapy and radiation treatments as well as many other unexpected surgeries and expenses that accompanies many who face such a challenging illness.
Sherran Deems is a single, vibrant, talented, and proud lady, known for her thorough and demanding color theory and drawing curriculum she teaches at the School of Foundations at the Savannah College of Art and Design. When she was first diagnosed with stage 3b cancer, she thought she could fight through her demanding treatments, but soon discovered that she was going to be needing help. And, with family members scattered across the nation, she had to rely on the closest thing she has to family in Savannah; her fellow artists and co-workers.
