Nineteen local kids are creating art to raise funds to cure arthritis, the disease that they struggle with every day.
The Arthritis Foundation's Arts for Arthritis program increases awareness that “Kids Get Arthritis Too.” It is a one-of-a-kind experience in which local volunteer professional artists are paired with kids with juvenile arthritis. Together they create beautiful and inspiring works of art while building children's pride and self-esteem. Art masterpieces will be auctioned off at the Arthritis Foundation's Masquerade Gala on Sept. 6 at Memminger Auditorium.
Art created by these young art students will be unveiled at the Arts for Arthritis Open House at the Lowcountry Artists Gallery Sunday Aug. 3 from 1-3 p.m. This is a public event, many of the artists and families will be there, and refreshments will be served.
Art masterpieces will remain on display the entire month of August at the gallery. The pieces will be available for purchase online at www.dvineaffair.org during this time. Anything not sold by Sept. 6 will go on the auction block at the gala.
