Please join us for the next Open House Art Gallery on Saturday, March 28, 2009, starting at 5 pm.
Frederika Sumelius, talented artist and dedicated social activist, will be presenting photographs of the ethnically cleansed Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian minority women and their families in Macedonian refugee camps as their homes were destroyed in Kosovo after the end of the 1999 NATO Bombing in Yugoslavia: some biographies the women wrote of their lives before the bombing, during their plight; and examples of hand-work they created in income generation projects program created by Frederika.
Beautiful Roma-inspired tunes, songs of love, passion and longing by Aurelia Lucy Shrenker and Eva Salina Primack (www.myspace.com/aesings.)
As always Wayne Bridge and Dorota Streitfeld are the accompanying host artists; and Rich Streitfeld is our host of honor and whimsy, bank of information and network advice.
All art is offered for sale, discussion, comments and ice breaking.
Bring pot luck food, drinks, and musical instruments, if you play. By popular demand we will have a fire pit outside, so hot dogs, franks, wursts, sticks etc. will be nice.
May all beings be well, happy, and safe from suffering,
Frederika, Dorota, Rich and Wayne
