HEARTS & SOULS –
An Exhibit of Solidarity
opens on Saturday, April 30th.
In light of the war in Ukraine and the mounting challenges its people face Mary Cantone, owner of William Ris Gallery, has changed her 2022 calendar to help the effort. On April 30th a show opens with single works by 30 + invited artists represented by the East End Long Island gallery.
HEARTS & SOULS is a show dedicated to help the thousands of victims suffering through the turmoil of war in Ukraine. A portion of sales will go to Razom, a charitable organization benefiting the countless victims in need as a result of the war. Razom is responding to this by providing critical humanitarian war relief and recovery depending on the most urgent needs as they evolve. “Razom” is Ukrainian for “together.”
Cantone says, “Watching the news I am reminded just how fortunate we all are. This is how we can help in a small but important way. The artists have stepped up without hesitation to participate in this meaningful event. I couldn’t look away. It’s the right thing to do.”
Participating artists include Ukrainian artists Yevgenia Nayberg and Ilona Sochinski in addition to Jane Kirkwood, Debbie Ma, Seung Lee, Dorothy Ganek, Wendy Prellwitz, Janet Culbertson, Will Ryan, Gina Gilmour, Susan M. Saunders, Margaret Minardi, Mike McLaughlin, Vaidehi Kinkhabwala, Louise Crandell, Nick Cordone, Anahi DeCanio, Keith Mantell, Rasa Valiene, Pat Dews, Scott Farrell, Jody Rawdin, Jane Hartley, Jim Slezak, Anna Jurinich, Steve Vando, Pat Feiler, Devon Reina, Marilyn Weiss, Maggie Cahoon, Andrea Minick Rudolph, Jessie Pollock, Erica Radich, Ty Stroudsburg, Larry Johnston, Isadora Capraro, Lautaro Cuttica, Franco Cuttica, Devin Cecil-Wishing, Carol Young, Doug Reina, Larry Johnston and Ralph Palamidessi.
