SOZO Gallery: PARTNERS Artist Initiative

It's been a crazy week around this part of town. I can't explain it, but a good friend of mine dished that for mom's, May is equally as busy as December. No arguments. . . It's banana's over here!

Last Thursday I was lucky enough to make it to Sozo Gallery for the opening show PARTNERS Initiative, benefiting Hospice & Pallative Care of Charlotte. The uptown gallery is owned by local art philanthropist Hannah Blanton. Hannah is a true believer in the medical benefits of both art and yoga and is a yoga instructor at my personal favorite yoga studio, Y2 Yoga.  

*Hospice representative Rachel Smith was in the house!

The exhibit runs from May 8th through June 24th, and 10% of proceeds will be donated to Hospice & Pallative Care of the Charlotte Region.  

Paintings are by:

Adrian Chu Redmond
Amy Sullivan
Barbara Jamison
Dottie Leatherwood
Fonda Doerre
Libby Smart
