Art captures the spirit of giving
ROBYN Esdaile has a warm and fuzzy feeling after donating a piece of textile art for the Forget Me Not exhibition put on by Sue Johnson at Just Because.
Mrs Johnson has organised her second exhibition at Just Because to raise funds to help the orphan children of Afghanistan.
"I hope Sue does this every year," Mrs Esdaile said.
Most items were made by the children at Hope House in Afghanistan who benefit from the fundraising efforts of Mrs Johnson and helpers.
Some other artworks have been donated and will be on display and for sale at Just Because for the next month.
Mrs Johnson said she hoped to raise thousands of dollars.
"The framing for works from children at Hope House was donated by Duggan's Camera Centre and Quick Shop," Mrs Johnson said.
Mrs Johnson's cousin Vinnie Williams bought two paintings yesterday at the opening.
