During the opening ceremonies SPHC Administrator, Guillermo “Mito” Paz, explained the importance of making art a part of the island community. Such charitable events not only advocate art, but also benefit the less fortunate. Paz thanked all the ladies for contributing their works towards this worthy cause and encourages other artists to do the same.Art Show Women in Need Fundraiser-7
Throughout the event refreshments and snacks were circulated. Those in attendance marveled over the uniqueness of the art in display. Guests also got the opportunity to mingle with the artists, learning a little bit more on their individual inspirations for their paintings. Without a doubt the event was a colorful success.

Those interested in viewing or purchasing the paintings can visit the SPHC on Angel Coral Street from 8AM to 5PM, on Monday to Friday.
