A silent auction benefit for Haitian Earthquake Relief took place at Indigo Arts Gallery to coincide with the Society for Photographic Education conference, on Friday, March 5, 2010, from 6 to 9pm.
Noted photographer Phyllis Galembo enlisted the help of many of her colleagues in mounting this exhibition and silent auction of photographs taken in Haiti.
The list of photographers participating included:
Andrea Baldeck, Bill Bollendorf, Christian Cravo, Anthony Fisher, James Fischetti, Phyllis Galembo, Leah Gordon, Joanne Leonard, Benjamin Lowy, Daniel Morel, James Nachtwey, Stuart Rome, Maggie Steber and Lynne Warberg. Thank you to all who participated!
This was a rare opportunity to see and purchase original artworks by a group of distinguished photographers while helping to house survivors of the Haitian earthquake.
100% of the proceeds raised were donated to Partners in Health to provide needed tents for artists who have been left homeless by the devastating earthquake. If you missed the auction you may donate by going directly to their website.
A collection of artworks from Haiti - paintings, sculpture and textiles - was also on display and sale at Indigo Arts Gallery for the benefit of Haitian relief.
The exhibit and silent auction took place from 6 to 9pm on Friday, March 5th at:
Indigo Arts Gallery
