The new VIBE Art Gallery in Somersworth, NH will be launching “Art for the Heart” charity event in conjunction with the American Heart Association, which coincides with Somersworth 2nd Saturday, February 11th.
This charity was chosen for two reasons. First, because we love Valentine’s Day! More importantly, because Ruth R. Bleau, one of the founding members of VIBE Art Gallery, had open heart surgery at the end of July 2016. A growth called a myxoma was discovered in her heart and had to be removed. She is thankful that it was found and thankful that it could be removed. As a result, Ruth has a new awareness of the brevity of life. An awareness too, that we must seek our spot and strive towards what brings us joy. For these reasons, VIBE is happy to have chosen the American Heart Association to be our partner in our first exciting event as VIBE Art Gallery.
VIBE is located at 67 High Street and will open its regular doors at 11am with “Art for the Heart” festivities beginning at 5pm until 8pm. Each VIBE Artist has created a special piece of art inspired by love or the heart. These pieces will be a part of a silent auction, which will be running the whole month of February with winning bidders notified on March 1st. You may visit VIBE to bid on the work of your choice or you may bid via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. VIBE Art Gallery is also on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
