Uganda Art Exhibit in Seattle

Great opportunity for those of us in Seattle to learn more about Uganda, the Batwa people and enjoy a wonderful art exhibit in Columbia City. The details below are courtesy the Kellerman Foundation and the Bwindi Community Hospital March newsletter.

Seattle artist Marsha Conn visited Bwindi last year with a group of area artists to teach new techniques to Batwa artisans ( Marsha was instrumental in the conceptualization of the Batwa Women’s Center and is a major donor towards its construction. Marsha and friends have created an art exhibit entitled Uganda: Beneath the Surface, which will run March 14-April 30 at Columbia City Gallery, 4864 Rainier Ave. S. Seattle, WA 98118 (phone 206-760-9843). Proceeds from their gallery sales will help fund the final construction phase of the Batwa Women’s Center. Stop by to see the show if you are in Seattle this month!
