The "Art House" Special Exhibition to Benefit Austin's Homeless

Posted: Updated:

Mondo Gallery is teaming up with Mobile Loaves & Fishes for its first charitable event to feature original paintings and illustrations from talented artists among Austin's homeless. The show will have an opening reception with artists in attendance on Thursday, July 10 from 7 - 10pm and will be on display July 11and 12, from 12 - 6pm at the Mondo Gallery, located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX. All profits from the sale of the artwork will benefit the artists.

Mobile Loaves & Fishes is a social outreach ministry that empowers communities into a lifestyle of services with the homeless. One of their programs, "Art House," is designed to provide dignified work for those currently on the streets as a means to provide income and an opportunity for change. Operated out of a studio trailer, the Mobile Loaves & Fishes "Art House" equips artists with a place to work as well as art supplies, in addition to providing a safe space where they may also take showers, do laundry, and enjoy a healthy lunch.

"When we first met the artists from the Mobile Loaves & Fishes Art House project we saw a fantastic array of styles and an abundance of unique creative expression. For this gallery show we challenged these artists to share their interpretations of the movies that inspire them. We are thrilled with the results and think you will be too," said Alamo Drafthouse CEO Tim League.

"I am so grateful to Tim League and Mondo for coming along side us to support the artists and Community First!" said Alan Graham, President of Mobile Loaves & Fishes.

"It is a wonderful opportunity to work with the community of artists and supporters here in Austin. Mobile Loaves & Fishes helps the homeless by providing a platform for us to nurture our talents and make income to survive," said artist Aaron Drawdy.

The show will include approximately forty original pieces of artwork from the following artists:

Debbie Cantu
Amy Carpenter
UTE Dittemar
Aaron Drawdy
Cathy Carr-Haynes
Clifton Hayes
Jerry Hurta
Katy Joy Kingdom
Michael Walker
