Schurig Center is pleased to share “Animal Tales” a collection of animal mixed media artworks and writing created by artists in our Art Studio. Artists spent art sessions creating the images and writings for this book. The artists reflected on the importance of animals in their lives, and how they provide friendship, inspiration, healing, and unconditional love. During the process of creating the images, stories, and reflections, the artists shared thought provoking experiences of the healing impact that animals have in their lives. Enjoy!
Be sure to purchase your “early bird” tickets for the BAM Gala soon, as the deadline is March 17! Early bird tickets are $150; after March 17, standard tickets are $200. The event will be held Saturday, April 8, 2017 at the Osher Marin JCC in San Rafael. Visit the BAM Gala page for complete details. Tickets may be purchased any time before April 1 online or by calling our office at (415) 461-6771.
As always, proceeds from the Gala will benefit a scholarship fund for Schurig Center clients. Karen Schurig, our founder, believed no one should be turned away from programs and services due to lack of financial resources. Your support is essential in helping us keep Karen’s vision alive. (And when you purchase a ticket, all but $40 of the cost is a tax-deductible donation. A win-win!)
The Gala will feature cocktails and a delicious buffet dinner, live music, a silent auction, a raffle, and our own Schurig Center client art gallery. During the program, we will honor Dr. Eric Freitag and Shari Weiser, recipients of the 2017 Creating Connections Award. Dr. Freitag and Ms. Weiser are being honored for working to improve the quality of life for those with brain injuries. Please join us in celebrating their achievements.
Many thanks to our generous corporate sponsors and individual donors — we couldn’t do it without you! (Please see the BAM Gala page for a complete list.)
We hope to see you at the Gala!
In August 2015, BINBA artists collaborated to create three woven panels for an art show at The Tamalpais senior residence in Greenbrae. Creating art with others fosters a sense of well-being and engagement that assists in creating a meaningful life. The participants experience a sense of community in creating a shared artwork.
