NUarts Gallery is excited to showcase for the month of April “Africa”, a creative collaborative journey of Dee Randolph and Kathy Gideon.
Dee Randolph, a Masters graduate from San Diego State University, is an illustrator with a background in medical and scientific illustration. Kathy Gideon received her Masters in Psychology from Columbia University and has worked for many years in the field of art therapy. “Africa” includes compelling photographic images and works in pastel, acrylic, water color and collage/mixed media inspired by Gideon’s recent and previous trips to Kenya.
Proceeds from the sale of the work will go to the SAWA SAWA Founation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting the people of Africa in their efforts to develop and sustain programs of health, education, commerce, agriculture, art and social services and develop cross-community understanding.
An opening reception, part of the citywide celebration First Fridays Artswalk, will be hosted by NUarts Gallery on Friday, April 5, 5-8pm.
