Miami Beach Visual Arts

Reception for Silkies of Madagascar

Reception for Silkies of Madagascar Saturday, November 3, 6-8pm - Williams McCall Gallery, 110 Washington Avenue, CU-3, Miami Beach

The Williams McCall Gallery will feature the work of renowned photographer David Evans, whose favorite subjects are underserved indigenous people in developing countries – especially women, newly empowered to shape their own destinies. The portfolio on view highlights a group of traditional silk weavers in central Madagascar, who are just gaining access to sustainable, international, fair-trade markets. The impact of this new income is immediate and generational. Meet the artist who will speak at 7 p.m. The work will be on display through November 24, and a portion of each sale goes to the Federation Sahalandy Reforestation Project.
