Affordable art at 3rd Annual ART MACtown
|One of the pieces by MACtown artist|
MACtown’s mission for the past 51 years has been to improve the lives and further the independence of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in South Florida.
“ART MACtown was the vision of international artist George Rodez who first approached me about this project three years ago” said Violet Gonzalez of MACtown“. He came to us with a plan that we thought would not only help MACtown raise some much needed funds but also help the people we serve by offering them an outlet where they could get in touch with their emotions, inner feelings and express themselves through painting. The canvases painted would then be showcased at a reputable art gallery, giving our artists the opportunity to be seen in a world where they can sometimes go unnoticed. Rodez works with each and every one of our clients in helping them express themselves. Some of our artists are non-verbal while others have very little mobility, but it is amazing and nothing short of a miracle to see how they light up when they take that first paintbrush in their hands and begin to paint and create to the best of their ability”.
Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served sponsored by Giraffas Brazilian Restaurant Midtown, Machiyas Restaurant Midtown, Lime Fresh Mexican Grill, and Mixtura Peruvian Fusion Restaurant. There is a suggested $25 donation at the door. Complimentary parking will be available.
Oxenberg Fine Art and Kelley Roy Gallery is located at 50 NE 29th Street, in the Wynwood Arts District.
