From the Back Cover
How did a young girl who came through social services and foster care end up in the art world with a multi-million dollar gallery and consulting business?
Through the kindness of strangers, fierce determination, and a survivor's sheer will, Bridgette Mayer's is a success story for the ages. In her inspirational memoir of gross neglect, violent abuse, and ultimately redemption, she shares her journey from the projects of Jersey City to eventually becoming one of Philadelphia's most celebrated gallery owners.
By following her heart and passion for art, Mayer's interests evolved from a means of escape into her salvation and her security. She used her inherent self-assurance, natural curiosity, and scrapper work ethic to overcome the damage inflicted on her as a child and create a harmonious, rewarding, and charitable life--for herself and the artists she represents.
The Art Cure is for anyone who aspires to a career in the arts and who has been told it's too difficult or impractical to pursue. With bravery and tenacity, anyone can achieve the life of their dreams, no matter how out of reach it may seem. Mayer offers readers a bridge to color and a lifeline of hope for the future.
