All three artists reside in Los Angeles\, and will be br inging their renowned work to an elegant space.
Saule Piktys is a Lithuanian transplant and a Santa Monica based artist who’s abstract work is inspired by the heart\, the hea d and the hand. Megan Schoenbachler has dedicated her camera to the people and places that aren't always seen. John Hawkins works from his Ventura stu dio and his years of experimentations led to creating with polyester resin on wood.
Brigitte Perrea ult has been working on humanitarian causes for over a decade. Her passion for the Arts and for humanitarian causes has led her to launch a unique pla tform for local artists and for non-profit organizations and their causes. The supported causes include victims of state sponsored torture\, orphaned children\, human trafficking and refugees. Brigitte often serves as a trans lator and assists refugees as they resettle in the Los Angeles area\, confu sed and alone\, suffering from shattered lives.
As June is the ‘Torture Awareness Month’\, and June 26 is the United Nations' (UN) International Day in Support of Vic tims of Torture ~ to remind people that human torture is not only unacceptable\, it is also a crime ~ Perreault Exhibitions will donate 10% o f the proceeds from the sale of works to Program for Torture Victims\, base d in Los Angeles. The Program for Torture Victims rebuilds the lives of tor ture survivors from over 65 countries who have stood up for freedom\, democ racy\, and human dignity.
Regarding the Humanitarian Art Project\, she says “Our mission is to hel p non-profit organizations receive funding and therefore perpetuate a sense of presence and help for those in need during difficult and/or tragic time s\, as well as supporting humanitarian causes around the world. With the ar ts and humanity combined\, we can rise up and help.”
