Sat. Sept 17,2011 Seasonal News and Reflections of Summer

Join me in supporting the victims of Domestic Violence as we ask for your help during the month of October.
The Fourth Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Project

“Break the Chains”
will open Saturday, Oct.1
at bjsartworks Gallery and run through Monday, Oct. 31.
Opening reception is Saturday Oct. 8, 4 – 6 pm
Meet the artists and enjoy the acoustic inspirational music of Pam Barker.

bjsartworks hopes to raise $1000.00 to give to our local Catholic Charities to help support the relief they provide to victims of domestic violence.


A raffle of original art will help meet our goal.....along with other opportunities to donate.


Domestic Violence is the silent devastation of families and souls.
This social dysfunction is deep rooted in families and individuals throughout history.
The cycle continues to breed destruction and quite often fatal outcomes in our society,
affecting more people and families than we know.

This project is designed to bring awareness to the public and to paint a picture of the devastation that this violence creates, as well as the survival that embodies hope and faith that rises us above and beyond the chains that bind individuals and families who have been victimized by domestic violence.
This years’ show continues to attract artists from around the region who believe in the cause.
Sculpture by Michelle Vara, Jane Bouchard, Pam Barker and 2D work by Fred Holman,
Connie Dodge, to name a few.
Pam Barker, the inspiration for this project, exhibits new interactive work for this show which urges us to reach beyond ourselves as victims, to look within and find our strength that will carry us above the past and into the future of hope and a life without violence.

Donations for raffle include.......
Jackie Cordell of ”A Keeper’s Jackpot” Beaded Jewelry
Cynthia Holman of “Beads by Cynthia” Original Bead and Chain work
Rhea Love Doran of Buttondown Gallery Original Flame work glass beads
Original Painting by Bev Saunders

Check donations can be made out to Catholic Charities and mailed or dropped off at the gallery.
Thank you for your support!
