Rebuilding, a show by local artist Cindy Hayden that includes a fundraising component for fellow artist Janet Whitehead, continues at the Wilson House Gallery, 115 Tranquille Rd. to Dec. 19.

Whitehead is being treated for a rare form of cancer and money raised at the show through a silent auction and bake sale will go to assist her with living expenses.

Hayden, a stained-glass artist, has also created a work, Tall Ship, in honour of Whitehead’s love of the unique sailing vessels and it is being auctioned off with part of the proceeds going to Whitehead.
