WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – A Cape Fear Community College art gallery is donating nearly 100% of its commission to an organization helping homeless people in our area.
The gallery features works by four CFCC professors as well as artists from the community. Some of the pieces are even portraits of homeless men and women in our area who have since found housing.
This Friday at 6 a.m., the Wilma Daniels Gallery will hold a silent auction for the pieces.
The Wilson Center and four CFCC professors donate every commission they make to Eden Village, a non-profit organization providing tiny homes to the chronically homeless and outfitting them with the necessary resources.
Sharon Wozniak Spencer has been working on this event for months. She hopes this will help one of the many organizations providing people with a safe and warm place to stay.
“It’s life beyond the show,” she explained. “I want people out. I really want them to go out and buy, because everything we can get goes to Eden Village. But I also think that raising awareness in Eden Village is a good thing. They are very close to their construction for the community center.
The community center will serve as the hub for Eden Village, providing a laundry room, workspaces for job interviews and a community garden.
