STRENGTH FROM WITHIN Art Show
Call to Artists:
STRENGTH FROM WITHIN
little fernwood gallery
1923 Fernwood Rd.
MARCH is Epilepsy Awareness Month; the official day is March 26th however over time the single day event has evolved into an entire month. Schools, shops and businesses such as Little Fernwood Gallery can get involved by hosting a fund raiser which in turn raises awareness about Epilepsy. The “official” colour of Epilepsy Awareness Month is purple so many of the paintings that will be exhibited in Strength From Within will feature the colour purple.
The Epilepsy Art Crew (a grassroots group of people who want to do good things) is calling artists in Victoria who have been impacted in any way by epilepsy, to submit art work for the 2nd Annual Art Show in Support of People with Epilepsy. The show, titled Strength From Within, will be at the little fernwood gallery during the month of March 2017. It is hoped, but not required, that each artist will donate a portion of the sale of their art to Victoria Epilepsy & Parkinson’s Centre. Funds raised will help sponsor enrollment in the Motion Ways program for people with epilepsy.
