Move over, Monet! Sr. Mary Ann Christine Kathman’s artwork was recently chosen as an auction item to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Cincinnati Chapter. The live auction took place at The Art of Making Memories benefit on May 7, 2015 at the Horseshoe Casino in Cincinnati. 

Sr. Mary Ann Christine, a participating artist in the Memories in the Making Program* in Lourdes Hall, donated her piece titled “Texas Bluebonnets.” When the gavel sounded, her watercolor painting had sold for $400.

The Covington Sisters of Notre Dame extend congratulations and gratitude to Sr. Mary Ann Christine and the highest bidder for their contributions.

*From the Memories in the Making website: For people with Alzheimer's, a world grown confusing, overwhelming, and maybe even frightening has been comforted a little by a palette of watercolor paints and blank piece of paper. With the encouragement of a trained art facilitator, these artists glide their brushes on paper forming meaningful works of art. Participants in this program can feel a real sense of accomplishment and achievement while living with memory loss. The Alzheimer’s Association’s Memories in the Making(MIM) art program gives people with dementia the ability to paint their thoughts, emotions and memories. The art becomes their voice.
