Hundreds attended the "Art of Friendship" event by the Friendship on June 23rd to view original art created by children and young adults with special needs.
After many months of working on these creations, people from within and beyond the community came to view the beautiful gallery. The creations, made in collaboration with Montreal artists, were made up of modern art, photography, still life painting, and negative space artwork.
Guests were treated to delicious hors d'oeuvres , fine wines, live painting, music. and were fortunate to witness the joy and pride of the children seeing they're artwork displayed, admired, and sold.
The evening continued with the Friendship Circle Drama Club performing "I can be anything I want to be." And Friendship Circle volunteers launching a video they created to end stereotypes about their friends with special needs.
We thank all those who came to show their support for the Friendship Circle and its special artists. Each of the 100+ art pieces were created under the guidance of Maureen Azimov, Elaine Dubrovsky, Ellie Morganstein, Susan Scott, Haim Sherrf, Shalom Serraf, Tobi Wexelman, Daniel Wiseboard, and a team of volunteers, whom we thank profusely for their genuine care and patience and for bringing out the talents in our special children.
