Exhibition Dates: December 4th - 31st, 2015
This holiday season, Stephanie Chefas Projects in collaboration with p:ear, a Portland non-profit that mentors homeless youth are delighted to announce a benefit group exhibit titled Project p:ear. Featuring works from an array of over 40 artists, Project p:ear celebrates the creativity of the human spirit and our inherent drive for self expression. From Aaron Nagel's contemporary realism to the intuitive paintings of Zio Ziegler, each participating artist delivers a distinct voice for art lovers to experience. In addition, 20% of all proceeds from the exhibit will be donated to p:ear programs.
p:ear is a program dedicated to building positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, arts, and recreation. Their aim is to foster trust, enable stability and build self-esteem by teaming troubled young people with role models and instructors for years at a time.
The organization targets youth who are frequently deemed as 'hopeless cases' by society at large, and believes that through intensive guidance their students can shine as bright as anyone else, if not brighter. One of p:ear's core philosophies is to inspire through creativity, thereby providing young people with the tools to express themselves constructively. For more information, visit www.pearmentor.org.
