Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media -

In­spi­ra­tion is an es­sen­tial part of the lives and art­work of the 15 chil­dren and young adults un­der­go­ing on­col­ogy treat­ment at the Uni­ver­sity of New Mex­ico’s Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal. IMAG­INE, spon­sored by the Imag­ine For­ward or­ga­ni­za­tion, is an inaugural art ex­hi­bi­tion at Hahn Ross Gallery that fea­tures re­cent art­works cre­ated by these young­sters. In April, they gath­ered at an all-day work­shop spon­sored by the Sun­shine Kids Foun­da­tion, a non­profit that pro­vides sup­port and pos­i­tive ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren with can­cer. Along­side their works is art by nine pro­fes­sional ar­ti­san vol­un­teers.

A per­cent­age of ev­ery sale at Hahn Ross on the evening of the ben­e­fit goes to the UNM Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal and to fu­ture Imag­ine For­ward/Sun­shine Kids art work­shops. The re­cep­tion and ex­hi­bi­tion are held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Fri­day, June 11, at 409 Canyon Road. Call 470-7932 for in­for­ma­tion.
