Danger to the Darkness: Art Exhibit Benefiting A21, Saturday March 16, 2013

Heath Gallery is proud to present “Danger to the Darkness”, a group art exhibition and fundraiser in support of The A21 Campaign, an organization committed to abolishing slavery and human trafficking in the 21st century. As passionately expressed by co-founder Christine Caine, the tragedy of kidnapping and sexual exploitation is a very real, prominent evil that can be prevented and eliminated through education, awareness, and action. Enter: Heath Gallery, with a fresh army of art activists.

“Danger to the Darkness” enlists creative minds from all disciplines to share glimpses of those powers that shine light into the dimmest corners of our collective existence. The walls of the landmark Harlem brownstone will be lined with thoughtfully assembled, personal images of redemption and triumph, and whose manifestations are fundamental testaments to the fortitude and resilience of the human spirit.

The Heath Gallery family invites you to join in contemplation and support of an urgent cause – one that can often seem worlds away.

Proceeds from the sale of all exhibited artwork will be used towards creating a safer, more peaceful global community via The A21 Campaign. Donations will also be accepted on a continuous basis throughout the duration of the exhibition. For more information about their work and mission, visit TheA21Campaign.org, or take part in the dialogue at our opening reception:
