The WAAM Education Program is proud to present a special three-week exhibition in support of
One Voice for Laos
December 13 – January 2, 2014
Reception and Panel Talk: Sunday, December 15 at 2 pm
On Sunday, December 15 at 2 pm, One Voice Global, will host an opening reception and panel talk for a benefit art show, showcasing original paintings of three young Laotian artists from the orphanage Deak Kum Pah, in Northern Laos. The event will be held at the Woodstock Art Association & Museum, and will include a panel discussion with local teen volunteers from area schools throughout the Hudson Valley and Catskills region. The students on this panel are involved in the One Voice community and some have traveled to the Deak Kum Pah orphanage and met the three artists whose work will be on display. Panel members will discuss their experience with the the One Voice charity, the featured artwork of the three Laotian artists, and their experience of visiting the orphanage, as well as the recent transition of the One Voice for Laos organization into the new One Voice Global.
Sale of the paintings will raise funds to send the three gifted orphaned painters to art school next year. With the help of One Voice Global and the local Hudson Valley community, Sensong, Kongless and Khuasong, respectively 21, 18 and 19, could achieve the amazing gift of a higher education, in a country where one’s next meal is rarely taken for granted.
One Voice Global is a non-profit, humanitarian aid organization, based in New York Hudson Valley. Our mission is to help local teenagers develop the kind of mindset, skills, and abilities they need to become compassionate humanitarians, social activists and global citizens.
One Voice Global accomplishes their goal by improving the lives of orphans and other children in need through fundraising projects, cultural exchange, and onsite service visits to the organizations we serve.
