An Evening of Haitian Art

My art piece entitled "Wild and Peaceful" which was auctioned during the event.

Guest mingle during the silent auction and opening reception.

Moi and gallery owner, Florcy Morisset of Vivant Collection enjoy one of the exhibit pieces in the gallery.

On Saturday, June 5th, I was honored to have been one of the artists represented by Vivant Collection to have my mixed media work auctioned as part of the Links, Incorporated fundraiser for several Haitian organizations including:

Art Creation Foundation for Children

Les P'tits Tresors School
Partners in Health

Delaware Links, Inc. member, Valerie J. Gilliam, Chair of the fundraiser event, was the winner of one of my art pieces "Queen Series: Wild and Peaceful."

Over 100 prominent guests of the Wilmington, Delaware community feasted on Hors D'oeuvres and cocktails while listening to the wonderful music was provided by child prodigy Emma Gould who played a special violin selection: Haydn Violin Concerto No.2 in G Major, First Movement.

The event was held at the beautiful Delaware Art Museum in downtown Wilmington, Delaware.

As part of the event, the highlighted "Haiti: A Tribute to Art" Exhibition provided an excellent backdrop to the event.

My thanks to Links Incorporated of Delaware and Vivant Collection for being a part of a wonderful event!
