This very regal looking Maasai Warrior was painted by Kathy Young Ross for our show Hot African Nights at Barton Gallery August 8 - September 9. Stop by on Second Saturday August 9 between 6:00pm - 9:00pm at the Barton Gallery 1723 I Street and see this and 30 plus other paintings created for this show by Kathy Young Ross, Cay Drachnik and myself.
The show is a benefit for the Patrician Primary School at Kabongo, Kenya. To learn more about the school we are helping go to their website at http://www.patriciankabongo.com. Brother Paul Brennan spoke about the school, the horrific violence experienced in Kabongo last January and the need for help on Capitol Public Radio's program Insight on July 23, when he was in Sacramento visiting his cousin, Cay Drachnik's husband. The show is archived on the website http://www.capradio.org if you would like to hear this fascinating interview. (It is the third segment of the program).
Hope to see you at Barton Gallery, second Saturday of August, the 9th.
