East Bay Artist Honors Sister, Aims to Inspire & Educate Community About ALS
The San Francisco Women Artists Gallery will host Hope Lives: Art for ALS during ALS Awareness month, May 2 – 26, 2023. The focus of this curated art exhibition is to inspire hope and raise awareness and advocacy for people living with ALS.
Melissa Stephens, the curator and creator of the exhibition says, “I felt powerless when my sister, Lynn Giovannelli, was diagnosed with ALS in July 2020. Two years later, Stephens started Hope Lives: Art for ALS in the spirit of her sister’s fierce determination to advocate for herself and others struggling with this disease. She wishes to educate people who don’t know about ALS.
To get people talking, Stephens has arranged multiple activities throughout May’s exhibition including an opening reception, wine tasting with Sonoma’s Corner 103 wines, an ekphrastic poetry reading, 7 days of guided meditation and an ALS Awareness Day at the gallery.
The exhibition will showcase 11 artists featuring ceramic sculpture, collage, mixed media & encaustic paintings. The theme of the artwork focuses on the 7 Chakra Affirmations.
