$20 suggested donation for opening reception

The group exhibition will feature donated works by artists whose talent and generosity will aid the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund.

 In keeping with the “Support. Inspire. Create. Renew” vision of ART from the ashes; all work must integrate the use of reclaimed elements and embody the theme of support. Artists are encouraged to “reclaim” their own remnants (castoffs from their own creative process) for use in creating their donated work.  By utilizing materials that appear to be void of possibility, the artwork in this exhibition intends to symbolize a renewal process for Japan that inspires hope.

 "Our exhibition to benefit Japan exemplifies an expansion of the mission behind ART from the ashes.  Life is a continuum of creation, destruction and renewal, a reality we must all recognize. Through the cathartic power of art, we hope to inspire and support communities faced with hardship as they journey through the recovery process." - Joy Feuer, Founder, ART from the ashes

Proceeds from the sale of art will be donated to the Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund. Contributions to the Fund go to organizations that directly help victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake that struck Japan on March 11, 2011. These include Japanese nonprofit organizations on the front line of relief and recovery and those that work on healthcare needs, including mental health services and the needs of children, including children who have lost one or both parents.


ART from the ashes: ART from the ashes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to support communities that have been devastated by natural disasters by providing a cathartic avenue of healing through art.  Debris reclaimed in the aftermath of tragedy is transformed into one of a kind works of art at the hands of our collective of artists and shown in a benefit exhibition. 

ART from the ashes is about transformation. By using reclaimed materials as our medium, we hope to inspire & support the heart, mind and planet.  The efforts of ART from the ashes are supported by contributing artists, sponsors and donations.  For more information visit
