CARE: October 11 at Mason Murer

Art is a universal language. Yet many girls around the world have never explored their creative talents. They live in poverty and many are from remote villages where their family’s economic situation compels them to withdraw from school to work or marry at an early age. 
 
CARE asked girls from the Republic of Georgia, Ghana, Honduras, India and Madagascar to help us tell their stories, using their own hands. We visited communities where we work, carrying suitcases packed with drawing paper, watercolor paints, colored pencils and pastels.  The girls jumped at the opportunity. For many of them, it was their first time ever creating art in this way. Through this activity – through their own art – the girls unlocked their imaginations. Some of the images show everyday lives that are very different from our own, but there is a common thread: a child’s eye for simple beauty, boundless hope and an appreciation for a world full of wonder. 
 
On their behalf, CARE is proud to present a selection of these works of art at the CARE: Through the Eyes of a Girl art exhibit at Mason Murer Fine Art Gallery, opening Friday, October 11 at 7:00 pm.
 
In celebration of the second annual International Day of the Girl, we will unveil and celebrate this unique art collection while enjoying international cuisine and the music of Willie Ziavino and C.O.T Band.  
 
Tickets are limited, and price includes international food, beer, and wine – please register now to join us for this festive evening! care.org/art
