Press release

Kehler Liddell Gallery is pleased to present Coalescence: A Benefit Art Exhibition. Through this exhibition Kehler Liddell Gallery is able to support two non-profit organizations: The Soroptimist Society and the Klingberg Family Centers. The benefit exhibition presents the work of Belgian painter and Soroptimist, Nicole Van Axx and local sculptor Susan Clinard. Both non-profit beneficiaries have missions that help improve the lives of women and children.

The Soroptimist Society is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls. The mission of the Klingberg Family Centers is to provide therapeutic treatment for children and families who have been traumatized by abuse and neglect.

Coalescence will feature nature-inspired watercolors by Belgian artist Nicole van Axx and other artwork by local artists including Kehler Liddell sculptor, Susan Clinard.

The exhibit will culminate in a Closing Reception event on Feb. 27, at 4 p.m. This event will provide an entertaining evening of art, live music, food and wine and will offer collectors a final opportunity to purchase extraordinary art at a range of affordable prices while supporting the efforts of the two nonprofit groups in their missions to help women, children and families in need.

This very special, one-night-only event features an exciting array of artwork inspired by nature and women's circumstances. In addition to an exhibit of an eclectically curated mix of artwork, guests will be entertained by the musical beat of the Raymond Hill School African Drumming Troupe and enjoy delicious offerings of Lena's Café and our wine bar. This event is a wonderful opportunity for both beginning and seasoned collectors to purchase beautiful and inspired artwork and for members of the community to support the work of these community service organizations. Admission is $35 per person for the Closing Reception event; viewing/cocktail hour will begin at 4 p.m.
