“Bahamian Art to make a difference in Haiti”

By JEFFARAH GIBSON

THE entire world felt the “shake”, heard the cries, and watched as tears trickled down the faces of victims devastated by the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince last month and for that moment made television viewers stop to think “this could be me”.

With that in mind, people all around the world are coming together to bring healing to the nation of Haiti and its people.

And likewise, in the spirit of benevolence and humanitarianism Bahamian fine artists and photographers are also joining forces in a “one night only” art exhibition to raise funds for orphanages that were demolished in the disaster.

This, however, is no ordinary showcase, works of all different mediums will be exhibited.

And while art aims to express an idea or belief, the show goes beyond simply telling a story, or sharing an experience. It aims to get others involved in something of a much greater value.

A heartwarming experience, the art show not only seeks to attract art fanatics, but those who can afford to render their time to a worthy initiative also.

“What we need right now is support from any and everyone. This is a big deal because any funds that we raise will be donated to rebuild orphanages in Haiti,” said Christina Aylen, organizer of the show. “If you love art come out, you might find a piece that you like, if you don’t like art still come because there are other things that can be donated,” she said.
