Gallery Veronique To Help Save The Congo

Fishermen at Zanzibar Harbor by George Brose

      An East African photography exhibit by five artists will be on view at the Gallery Veronique in Harper's Point opening with a reception on Saturday, February 25 from 5 to 9:30pm.  The exhibit will continue through Saturday, March 3 with proceeds benefitting Project Congo, an organization formed
by Dr. Sylvia Esser-Gleason who traveled to the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2008.  Finding devastation and suffering from the current war (it has been going on since 1994 and is now the second deadliest war of the past decade), she started Project Congo upon her return.  She will be the guest speaker at the opening reception.
