Yew Tree Gallery in Greensboro, NC, Features Works by Ann Hooker
Yew Tree Gallery in Greensboro, NC, will present the exhibit, The Children of Haiti, featuring works by Ann Hooker, on view from Apr. 2 - 30, 2010. The gallery will also sponsor a special exhibit and fund raising sale to benefit the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti.
Hooker creates paintings and drawings in pastel, oil, pencil, and pen and ink. She has exhibited her work at Yew Tree since its opening in 2008, and she has been featured in other galleries and art exhibitions in the Piedmont and Triangle areas. She has done commissioned work in New Jersey and North Carolina, and she has pieces of her art in several private collections.
Hooker will exhibit several paintings along with a number of drawings of Haitian children. These special drawings were inspired by photos of children taken during mission trips to Haiti by members of her church, Westminster Presbyterian in Greensboro. These wonderful drawings capture the children's personalities, by turn sad, playful, impish, and happy.
Yew Tree artists and some very special friends have donated original artwork and pottery that will be priced at only $50 (plus tax) for paintings and $25 (plus tax) for pottery per item. Proceeds from this sale will be donated to Family Health Ministries (www.familyhm.org) to assist them in their relief efforts in Haiti. Family Health Ministries (FHM), a non profit, human services organization based in Durham, NC, has worked in Haiti for many years to provide medical services, educational programs, and care for orphaned children.
FHM has redoubled its efforts since the earthquake by providing on-site assistance and emergency services to those whose lives have been so affected. A wide variety of art has been generously donated by the artists, including, but not limited to, pieces directly inspired by the scenes and people of Haiti. All items in the special sale will be sold well below normal value to make these pieces affordable to a wide range of art lovers and to those who simply want to help those in need.
Yew Tree's wide selection of beautiful fine artwork from 14 North Carolina artists will be on display and available, as usual, in addition to this special event.
