Art Show Women in Need-1Last weekend on January 11th and 12th The San Pedro Art Group hosted their annual “Women in Need” art show to benefit the community. For the last six years the event has been held at different venues, ranging from the Sunbreeze Hotel, Sunset Grill and Tropic Air Guest Lobby, with the last two years being held at Xanadu Resort. This year the group of very talented (and generous) women artists included Rose Escalante, Judy Sheinbaum, Donna Richmond, Carolyn Price, Violet Henderson, Susan Lala and Samantha Alcuin. Art aficionados were treated an array of beautiful water colors, glass jewelry, hand painted cushion covers, greeting cards and more.Art Show Women in Need-8
Group member and prolific artist Sheinbaum commented to The Sun, “We had a fantastic response from the community, and even though on Sunday the weather was a slight issue, we saw people coming in all day long. We are so pleased. It was one of our best shows yet…we raised over $6,000!” Even raffle tickets to win darling oversized dolls hand knitted by Sheinbaum were on sale.
Proceeds from the art sale will go to women who are in need on the island, with funds discreetly issued to those who are most disadvantaged. The weekend show was a fantastic opportunity for residents and visitors alike to purchase lovely artwork while supporting a community program and The San Pedro Sun applauds these charitable artisans.
