Family Justice art project benefits child abuse victimsBee Staff Reports
The Stanislaus Family Justice Center is selling artworks inspired by art done by children affected by domestic violence.
The works will be at its annual open house and fund-raiser Thursday.
Forty-four adult artists from across the region created art based on the works of children participating in the center's Art Restores Kids program.
The pieces, on display through Saturday at the Chartreuse Muse in downtown Modesto, include paintings, photography, a ceramic pot, a pillow and sculpture.
Many artists said the project was an emotional one. All proceeds from the sales will go to the Stanislaus Family Justice Center, which serves domestic violence victims.
Sonora artist Kathleen Wolf said she participated because she has always had a heart for the down-and-out. "I'm hoping that it will stir the hearts of people," she said.
