Juried Art Exhibit and Craft Sale

Royal City Gogos invite you to attend Celebrating
African Grandmothers, Juried Art Exhibit and Craft Sale. An independent jury selected 40 pieces for the art show display.
With almost no support, grandmothers have stepped forward to care for millions of children orphaned by AIDS,
sometimes as many as ten to fifteen in one household. They display astonishing reserves of love, courage and emotional
resilience, even while grieving the loss of their own adult children.
Save the Date: May 9 - 12 and visit this exhibit of exquisite art.
The touring art show Celebrating African Grandmothers will go on tour and grandmother groups across Western Canada will host this show over the next year. The show returns to New Westminster in time to celebrate International Women's Day 2014. With a gala dinner and auction on March 7.
