An art friend of mine, Tyna Silver, is holding her first solo exhibition and sale from April 24 to May 9 at the Foto Shop Gallery in New Liskeard. The exhibit is comprised of pastel portraits of children from around the world. The portraits are painted from photos supplied by Plan Canada (formerly Foster Parent's Plan). Tyna is a supporter of Plan Canada, and will be donating 30% of the proceeds from sales of the portraits to Plan Canada.
Read her press release for the full story behind the exhibition and sale.
Several of the portraits may be seen on the multi-talented artist's new website, but if at all possible do try to see them in "person" at the Foto Shop. They are hauntingly beautiful.
