Asylum Gallery is an artist-run space that is dedicated to showing the best of contemporary art by regional artists and to giving back to the community.
Asylum Gallery will donate 30% of sales proceeds to the Womens Wisdom Project, a nonprofit program of the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services. We are asking the artists to donate the work because it will all sell for $5 each and then 30% of those proceeds will go to the non-profit group. The other money will be used to print the cards, postage for mailing and the food/beverages for the reception in May....
Women's Wisdom Project is an art program for adult women who want to broaden their creative lives. Women's Wisdom is a free, drop-in program that includes art classes taught by professional artists. Women's Wisdom Project provides a free, hot lunch, a supportive staff, counseling, referrals and a unique opportunity for socialization. WWP accepts women from all backgrounds and walks of life.
The women use the healing power of art to recover and create stable, productive lives for themselves and their children. The women range in age from their 20's to their 70's, and the average age of a Wisdom artist is in her 40's. No art background is required to participate in the program. By using the creative process in a warm, supportive envi ron ment, WWP teaches women that they have the potential to shape their own lives. Expressing themselves in paintings, sketches, sculpture, writing and poetry rekindles their spirit and sense of self-worth. The goal of Women's Wisdom Project is to allow women to express themselves through art and regain the emotional strength to re-enter society, rejoin their families, go back to school, or join the working world.
