"Helping Hands for Haiti" features art, food and music Sept. 30 in Cheyenne

Clay Paper Scissors Gallery in downtown Cheyenne will host a reception for its new show "Helping Hands for Haiti -- paintings and drawings by Paula Egan-Wright," on Thursday September 30, 5:30-7 p.m. Traditional Haitian food will be served and music will be provided by the Haitian Quartet

Paula Egan-Wright, an East High School French teacher, spent part of the summer in Haiti helping with earthquake relief at an orphanage. While she was there, she produced beautiful and poignant paintings and drawings of the people, places and the destruction wrought by the earthquake. Full of hope and life moving on, these paintings provide a moving documentary of a country struggling to regain its feet after disaster. Paula's drawings include portraits of children and people, and show the changes to famous places like the President's Palace and the Iron Market. All proceeds will go to support the orphanage in Haiti. Helping Hands for Haiti will be up through October 23, 2010.

Current gallery hours are Fridays and Saturday, 1-5 p.m.

FMI: Call 307-631-6039.
