Artist creates foundation to help those in need

| 19/04/2011

(CNS): Local visual artist Al Ebanks is planning to auction off some of his work to raise money for those who have suffered as a result of the devastating earthquakes and tsunami in Japan. Ebanks, whose work has found success on the international stage, says this initiative also marks the start of his new foundation, From the Art, which will use art to raise money for local and international causes.“It has been difficult for me to watch the devastation in Japan and I feel that this is something I can do to help with the recovery efforts,” said Ebanks. Guests will have an opportunity to bid on the pieces on display at the silent auction on 12 May at 6pm at Camana Bay

There will also be appetizers, champagne, music and dancing, and the opportunity to win various prizes donated by local merchants.
