One of my framed landscapes and several signed prints will be sold next Saturday at the art show Raiders of Lost Art, at the Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville, June 6, 10am-4pm. Numerous of my signed prints are also for sale. All proceeds will go to the excellent Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
If you have a chance to attend this art show, I encourage you to do so. It’s organized by Oceanside Grandmothers to Grandmothers, an impressive local group which coordinates the creativity, energy, and organizational skills of senior women in this region of Vancouver Island. Their Campaign supports grandmothers in subSaharan Africa who have buried their own children (victims of the AIDS pandemic) and are raising their grandchildren — often in conditions of extreme hardship. How could anyone NOT support such a campaign of solidarity, uniting grandmothers in two continents to give the next generation a chance?
