A Trek Across Nepal, our new art exhibit opened as the devasting earthquake hit

In the Fall of 2014, Canadian artist Marie Danielle Leblanc embarked upon world travels which took her on a two month journey to Nepal, followed by a trip to Italy.   By mid-November, Marie was trekking in Annapurna in Nepal and several days later in Thorong La over 17,769 feet above sea level.  

 The new solo exhibit, A Trek Across Nepal at Elisa Contemporary Art is inspired by these travels.  The exhibit opened at the Riverdale Gallery on April 25, 2015, the day the first devastating earthquake hit that region. 

 In light of the recent earthquake in Nepal, a portion of all the gallery sales from this exhibit will be donated to relief efforts in Nepal through AmeriCares and Charity: Water.

Please join us for a special fundraising event on Saturday, May 16th from 4-6pm and meet Marie Danielle and hear her stories of this extraordinary place.
