Artsy Fartsy ... for a cause

Was at the Sichuan Art Exhibition organized by Citycare today to raise funds for the disaster-hit area and its survivors especially students. The paintings were drawn after the Wenchuan (Sichuan) '5.12' earthquake, many dating June-July 2008. Like what the artist said today at the opening ceremony. That for the artists who painted the pictures, it took much courage for them to paint/sketch/draw their feelings and expressions.

Sun our Ambassador of Love donating her cash and time to the children strickened by the disaster.
She is a courageous childcare teacher who sacrificed her life to save her students. Her parents said she should have been married today...

This picture was painted by the artist 3 months before the earthquake. Now it's all gone...

Schools built temporarily so that the students can continue to study after the earthquake.

The series 'Series of Home' (top picture) drawn by a 9 year old who has passed on in the earthquake. 'Beauty Hometown' (below picture) is painted by an 11 year old girl who was rescued from the debris.

Truly,a picture speaks louder than words.....
