Ward-Nasse Gallery organizes a fundraising benefit for the River Fund - New York. We believe that art plays a vital role in helping people with HIV/AIDS to look at situations positively as a way of getting through life, of not giving up. Art has contributed in brining HIV-AIDS to a much wider, largely sympathetic audience and encourages many contracted with the disease to live a courageous and productive life, full of creativity. Art has broken through stereotypes and boundaries. It has also helped us recognize that this seemingly modern problem is in many ways timeless. The benefit event will be an uplifting celebration of life and the will to live it to the fullest.

River Fund - New York is a non-profit direct service organization, dedicated to providing physical, emotional and spiritual support to: the hungry, the homeless, children and adults living with HIV/AIDS, people living with severe physical and mental challenges.

The exhibition will feature Watson & Spierman represented artists: Daniel Arsenault-mixed media collage photography, featuring the Twichenham Streaker, Ted Matz-mixed media, Mark G. Picascio - landscape and reportage photography and the work of over 100 resident artists of the Ward-Nasse Gallery: Caniglia, John Goetz, Samm Cohen, Kelsey Craven, Richard Lewis, Allan Linder, Rochelle Fogel, Dragoslav Milic, Eun Kyung Jeong, Mateo Galvano, Judy Tanibajeva, Olan Montgomery among others.

The exhibition will be open to the public on January 9th 2004, from 7-10 p.m. with a reception sponsored by: Pearl Vodka,, restaurants: Raoul's and Cipriani. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted, the proceeds form which will go directly to the AIDS program of the River Fund - New York.
