Woodside artist unveils 'Miracle of Hope'

A fusion of art, science and raw emotion will be unveiled in Woodside on Friday, Aug, 27. A three-paneled work, entitled "Miracle of Hope," by Woodside artist Dave Putnam, follows the struggle of a human cell infected with HIV.

In the triptych, the cell is initially overrun by the HIV protease enzyme, but beneficent protease inhibitors eventually triumph over the intruding disease.

Mr. Putnam and his wife Martha said they will give 30 percent of their art sales during the month of August to the Stanford Positive Care Clinic to fund AIDS research. The triptych will reside at the Atherton clinic at 3351 El Camino Real, Mr. Putnam said.

The unveiling event, which will run from 7 to 10 p.m., will occur at 1101 Canada Road in Woodside. To attend, call 854-8218 or send an e-mail to
