What’s a BRA SHOW?

The Women’s Wisdom Project (WWP) and Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation are preparing to host their second ART BRA SHOW to bring awareness to the plight of breast cancer in Sacramento and its effects on all women. Artists have been invited to sculpt, paint, stitch and/or embellish a piece of artwork that uses the “bra” as a symbol.

The show will be held between Sept 10-19 at the 40 Acres Gallery, 3428 3rd Avenue, Sacramento, CA. Pieces will be auctioned on Sept 12 from 6-9 PM.

Come and see my “Puttin’ on the Ritz” metal and clay wall sculpture and the other interesting bra art there in August and plan to buy some art to further these good LOCAL causes.

Remember that Breast Cancer touches all of us. One in every eight women will get breast cancer during her lifetime. A cure needs to be found and you can help with your art purchase.

The Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation is a local non profit 501 (c) 3 dedicated to breast cancer education, outreach and screening in the greater Sacramento region. Their mission is "to save more lives and empower people with breast cancer through awareness, education and support." Please visit their website at www.albieaware.org or call (916) 927-1592 for more information.

The WWP is an art program of the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services, for adult women who want to broaden their creative lives. Women's Wisdom is a free, drop-in program that includes art classes taught by professional artists. The WWP provides a free, hot lunch, a supportive staff, counseling, referrals and a unique opportunity for socialization. They accept women from all backgrounds and walks of life. For more information, please call (916) 456-1980 or go to www.sfbs.org and check out their programs.

For more information about the show and/or if you would like to donate funds ANYTIME for these causes, please contact the WWP program manager, Helen Plenert, at (916) 456-1980 or at hplenert@sfbs.org
