For the past few months, 83 members of the Friendship Circle of Brooklyn have been feverishly working to create artistic masterpieces.
This Sunday, May 4th, Iyar 4 at 3:00pm, the doors at the Jewish Children’s Museum will open and proudly display The Art of Friendship Gallery to benefit the Friendship Circle of Brooklyn.
The art pieces were created under the guidance of artists Michoel Muchnik, Estee Klein and a team of volunteers.
Each of the 83 pieces, which are a mix of paintings and mosaics, have been professionally framed and hung for the exhibit.
They are priced between $100 to $500+, but those prices shouldn’t scare off potential admirers, Berel Majesky, director of the Friendship Circle said.
“We are inviting the whole community – men, women and children – to join us, whether it’s to purchase a piece or to enjoy an elegant viewing and show support,” he said, adding that there will be cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
“Our hope is that by 6:00pm when the doors close, each and every piece will have been sold,” said Chani Majeski, co-director of the Friendship Circle. “Each attendee will know they gave hope and encouragement to all our families, and those who purchase will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have brought sheer joy to a child who has sold his own artwork for the very first time.”
Thanks to the Bear Givers Foundation, all proceeds from the sales will benefit future programs of the Friendship Circle of Brooklyn.
