What: Art Gallery of Viera’s Edibles show turned out to be more than a feast for just the eyes, as last week $300 and a “van load” of grocery’s were donated to the Advent Lutheran Church Food Pantry on Wickham Road, a distribution site for several local churches.
Why was this particular distribution point chosen? Longtime members of the gallery, Dij and Rudy Pacarro, volunteer there throughout the year. “It is humbling and heartwarming to hear about the good these donations do and how it touches the hearts and lives of the recipients” says director Helen Wheatley.
These local charity shows are becoming a staple for the Art Gallery, with several more currently being planned throughout the next coming year. While there is a unique show put on every month to enjoy, like July’s special photography show “Exposure”, the next charity event to look forward to will be in September. “Call of the Wild”, will showcase art from member artists, with funds being raised for the Florida Wildlife Hospital.
