'Art from Nea Kavala' in the Holzwasser Gallery
Closing Reception & Presentation by Mayra Martinez: Saturday, May 6, 3-5PM
The New Art Center in Newton (NAC), in collaboration with guest curator Mia Rosenblatt Tinkjian and founder of Love Without Borders Kayra Martinez, is pleased to present Art from Nea Kavala: Paintings and Drawings by Refugee Children in Northern Greece.
About the Exhibition: Featuring drawings and paintings by displaced children living in the Nea Kavala refugee camp in Northern Greece, this exhibition stands as a powerful testament to the transformative power of art. Created by untrained children using limited materials, the artwork elegantly communicates the experience of transition. Some pieces relate to journeys, many of which are still ongoing; airplanes, boats, and roads stretching endlessly towards the horizon are common themes. Other works express a longing for normalcy with images of brightly colored sunsets, birthday cakes and animals that represent a desire for place to call home and feel safe. All works in the show are available for sale. Proceeds will directly benefit the children and their families.
May 6, 2017 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
