The “Beauty In The Face of Destruction” Haiti series has just been added to the opening reception for the KNIGHT Gallery–only THREE DAYS away!
This exhibition by Ross Oscar Knight features multi-media works including silver museo rag, watercolor, and canvas prints. The imagery on display will evoke your senses and place you right in the center of stories of people living everyday life across the globe. Since devastation is an unfortunate but familiar chapter in our daily narrative, this never before seen series from post-earthquake Haiti is yet another opportunity to, “love what you see!”
This August, in the middle of his busiest wedding season ever, KNIGHT dropped everything and flew to Haiti to support the relief efforts. It is there, in St. Louis Du Nord, where Ross had several life-changing moments. His experience came not from the destruction and devastation, but the beauty of the country and the spirit of the people. He feels it is only fitting to give back to Haiti a token of what it has given to him, so a portion of all proceeds from Haiti portraits will be donated to aHomeInHaiti.org.
aHomeInHaiti.org is a movement of people around the world that are looking to provide permanent housing to orphans with the rebuilding of the Miriam center. The Miriam Center, located in St. Louis Du Nord, houses, educates and loves on Haitian children with cerebral palsy, severe autism, and other major life challenges–one of the only facilities of its kind in Haiti. Its current space, which is used well, is extremely overcrowded and now houses children from the earthquake. With your purchase of an art print from Haiti you will help build the largest and best refuge center for children in Haiti!
Until then, get ready to love what you see and build community through photography!
