A collection of original paintings, entitled “Visions of Home Lands”, by local artist and Hearts & Homes for Refugees Board member Lori Kapner Hosp will be on exhibition at the White Plains Library Museum Gallery from April 3 through May 27, 2022.
Proceeds from the sale of paintings will go to Westchester-based Hearts & Homes for Refugees (www.HeartsandHomesforRefugees.org), an organization that welcomes, assists and advocates for refugee families in the region.
“My paintings are an homage to the bravery, kindness and exuberance of our new neighbors who bring so much to our communities. Each piece in the ‘Visions of Home Lands’ collection offers a narrative about the people, traditions or culture of the country it represents, and celebrates the beauty and richness of the worlds from which many of us come”, Hosp explains. (More information about Hosp and her artwork is available at www.LoriKapnerHosp.com.)
Hosp began painting for personal enjoyment but in recent years undertook new works with a specific purpose: to assist refugees and asylees in our communities to become self-sufficient in their new home land. Both the refugee families and the dedicated volunteers whom she has met, through her work as a volunteer and Board member of Hearts & Homes for Refugees, inspired and informed this work.
An opening reception will be held on Sunday April 3, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.
You may visit the gallery during regular library hours:
Monday – Thursday | 10am-9pm
