On Saturday, October 10, at 7pm, The Andrews Gallery, in conjunction with EvenKiel Photography and A Heart For Children (AHFC), presents a charity art auction of photographic images taken by underprivileged children in South East Asia. The Image-In Project travels to under-developed regions with gathered resources, including donated digital cameras, to provide orphaned and/or abandoned children with the opportunity to experience the artistic and creative art of photography. The children, ages seven and up, are given instruction on not only how to operate the cameras, but also on basic concepts including composition, color, and expression. After two weeks of instruction, the children are then set free to shoot pictures in their surrounding environments. The results are staggering. The ability of these young children, who live with such hardship, to capture the people around whom they live, the landscapes in which they have grown up, and the spirit of their own surroundings in an honest and straightforward fashion is truly inspiring. The images are then brought back to the U.S. and sold in select events geared towards raising funds to send back to the orphanages where these children have a wide range of needs. AHFC has already replaced the roof of an orphanage in Bali where 100 children were constantly awakened by water falling on them during the night. The October 10 reception is free and open to the public. The Andrews Gallery is located at 1002 N Coast Hwy 101 in Leucadia. (760/230-2680, www.theandrewsgallery.com)
