#659 Africa Portfolio I

Please see the previous 2 blogs for information about this post which spotlights Columbine Gallery's
"Weekend for Elephants" art show this past weekend and new works influenced by my trip to Africa in 2013. 

Columbine Gallery in Loveland, Colorado presented an art show - "Weekend for Elephants" - this past weekend to raise funds and to create awareness of the ivory poaching crisis in Africa.  Monies raised from sales will go to "Ivory Orphans"
. . .  Tanzania's orphanage for young elephants who are misplaced due to the slaughter of adults for their ivory tusks.

Below, are images taken at the "Weekend for Elephants" art show at Columbine Gallery.

Below, are fellow AAAP members and artists, Jan Martin McGuire and James Gary Hines.

Below, is an image of a new work inspired by my trip to Tanzania in 2013, entitled "Recumbent Giraffe".

Below, is a photo of Columbine Gallery owner, John Kinkade.  John and his daughter, Alyson joined
the AAAP artists in donating the "lion's share" of proceeds from sales to "Ivory Orphans" animal orphanage in Tanzania.
Their generous contribution which includes financing the entire show and promotional considerations will forever be recognized and appreciated by all.   The fight against poaching continues and AAAP and Columbine Gallery have very exciting plans for future efforts. Thank you, John, Alyson, and Ren!
