Art Splash 2014:  Courage & Creativity | Thursday, June 5, 2014 | 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm | at the Art Center | Admission:  $100

Fundraising cocktail reception honoring Sarah Dash (founding member of Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles)
and other VIPS, awards ceremony, exhibit and auction


Three of my photographs were selected for Courage & Creativity, a group exhibit of paintings and other works inspired by an observation made by the renowned artist, Henri Matisse:  “creativity takes courage.”  When creative people express their emotions through their artwork, writing or music, and they present it to the world to see, they in effect put themselves on the world stage to be critiqued.  It’s bold, it’s vulnerable and it requires a certain level of self-esteem and courage.  The works on exhibit will focus on this theme and 40% of the proceeds of all sales will go to benefit the Art Center.

The fundraising event, Art Splash 2014: Courage & Creativity, supports the work of Arts Horizons and LeRoy Neiman Art Center, now in its sixth year of operation in Harlem and whose mission is to strengthen the community through the arts.  The evening will include a cocktail reception, awards ceremony, exhibition and auction, which highlight the works of LeRoy Neiman along with a host of notable contemporary artists.
