It is almost here!
This Friday we will be hosting our first public fundraiser and showcase displaying some the artwork donated to us through our program, Painting For Hope. Through Painting For Hope we work towards our mission by bringing art therapy & painting to different venues, including the local Children’s Hospital at Memorial University Medical Center.
During the month of November, Blick Art Gallery has displayed various works of art created by some of the children that we have had the privilege of painting with. It has been such a blessing for us to encourage these families, and our hope that the same was done for them.
An artist reception and silent auction will be held Friday, November 21 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. All auction donations are tax deductible and will be used to:
- Fund more Paint Days bringing Hope to other children battling cancer
- Assist to provide special gifts to bereaved families who have lost a child
- Provide Paint Kits for a child’s personal use outside of the hospital settings
See more information about the event at www.painting4hope.org/events/2014-artist-showcase and come on out! Make a night of it by going downtown and stopping by. You do not need to be present to win the silent auction.
