Heart N Soul Gallery, located in the heart of the Culver City Art District, is hosting a group show, “Spring: New Beginnings” to benefit my wife’s charity, the Aurelia Foundation, which provides “new beginnings” for adults with special needs. When my daughter, Tiana, turned 18, there were very few programs that provided assistance to adults with autism.
Aurelia Foundation was founded to provide funding and support for programs such as “Step by Step” which serves adults with moderate to severe disabilities by providing a safe, caring, stimulating and enriching environment that nurtures ongoing growth, to help individuals achieve their full potential as contributing, valued members of our community.
The impressive list of artists who are participating include: AJ Fosik, Ana Bagayan, Bob Doucette, Bosko, Brandt Peters, Chet Zar, Colin Christian, Clayton Bros., Dave Kinsey, Dorian Vallejo, Eelus, Fabio D’Aroma, Futura, Geo, James Jean, Joshua Triliegi, Kathie Olivas, Kelly Houghton, Liz McGrath, Lola, Mark Ryden, Martin Wittfooth, Marion Peck, Megan Majewski, Mike Foulkrod, Naoto Hattori, Nate Frizzell, Ray Caesar, Sage Vaughn, Sas Christian, Scott Musgrove, Shag, Shepard Fairey, and Steven Daily.
We will also have a section of the gallery set aside for works from some of these amazing young adults, including my daughter, Tiana.
The date for our show will be Saturday, May 16, 2015, from 6 to 10 pm. The Aurelia Foundation will be on hand on the night of the show and will be accepting direct donations. Heart N Soul has donated several works of art to be raffled off as well. We will have the usual refreshments – beer, wine and appetizers, as well as my wife’s famous homemade desserts.
Hope to see you all there
