Gallery Statement on the Exhibition to Benefit Venezuelan Children
October 27, 2017
Miami, Florida, USA

For O. Ascanio Gallery and Espace Expression, it is a great pleasure to collaborate with Children's Benefit Fund in the organization of this exhibition of Venezuelan artists, whose purpose is to raise funds to help resolve the serious problems which thousands of children in Venezuela are struggling through. They need innumerable assistance which is necessary for their survival.

We would like to express our gratitude for the enthusiasm between O. Ascanio Gallery and Children's Benefit Fund's joint coordination for this event to become a reality, and to the supportive volunteers for their generous and ongoing participation which contributed significantly to this achievement.

To the sponsors, including individual Board Members of Children's Benefit Fund, AZ Communications, Inc., Camus Wine & Spirits and La Jolla Ballroom, our gratitude for having provided the significant financial contributions and in-kind gifts in the accomplishment of this end.

Also, we would like to publicly recognize UNICEF USA for having joined this commendable cause, because it guarantees that the funds previously agreed upon with the proceeds from the sales of these works, will reach the hands of Venezuelan Children in the form of necessary assistance which is warmly welcomed and will most assuredly provide support in the resolve of many issues.

Thanks to all of you, Friends, who with your presence and participation motivate us to spare no effort in trying to make possible any interest in helping our Venezuelan people.

Major works by Venezuelan artists such as Jesús Soto, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Alejandro Otero, have been brought together to support UNICEF USA in this urgent obligation in solidarity with our Children of Venezuela.

Thank you Friends, Artists, for joining this noble cause on behalf of millions of Venezuelans.
