Oxenberg Fine Art and Kelley Roy Gallery is proud to host the 3rd Annual ART MACtown. Over 100 original works of art created by the very individuals MACtown serves will be on display and available for purchase. The best news is that anyone can own a unique piece of original artwork created by a very special artist for the very affordable price of $50 for a 10â€ x 10â€ canvas.
MACtownâ€™s mission for the past 51 years has been to improve the lives and further the independence of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in South Florida.
â€œART MACtown was the vision of international artist George Rodez who first approached me about this project three years agoâ€ said Violet Gonzalez of MACtownâ€œ. He came to us with a plan that we thought would not only help MACtown raise some much needed funds but also help the people we serve by offering them an outlet where they could get in touch with their emotions, inner feelings and express themselves through painting. The canvases painted would then be showcased at a reputable art gallery, giving our artists the opportunity to be seen in a world where they can sometimes go unnoticed. Rodez works with each and every one of our clients in helping them express themselves. Some of our artists are non-verbal while others have very little mobility, but it is amazing and nothing short of a miracle to see how they light up when they take that first paintbrush in their hands and begin to paint and create to the best of their abilityâ€.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
