A fundraiser for the Integral Arts Mentoring Project opens at Kartel Espresso Bar in Cabarita Beach on Friday at 6pm.
Local artist and mentor Jhana David Bowen will open his exhibition Leap of Faith accompanied by a live performance by the wonderful and well-known musician Richard Bell together with an undisclosed spoken word and poetry artist to mysteriously appear on the evening!
All proceeds from the event will fund the Mentoring Project initiated by Integral Arts, delivering much needed art mentoring to people living with a variety of disabilities within the community. Integral Arts’ vision is to create a non-exclusive and culturally alive community in the Tweed Coast region without discriminating against those living with disabilities.
Artworks in the exhibition carry visually symbolic images; stunning works depicting graceful feminine forms; figures flying amidst stars in atmospheric, colourful skyscapes; artworks rich with layers of paint give a luminous depth to descriptions of life. The Leap of Faith theme revolves entirely around celebrating life purpose. Living one’s dreams, regardless of personal fears or obstacles.
