-Calligraphy And Fresh Flowers - 

  
March 10 (4pm)-16
Opening Reception Thursday, March 13, 6-8pm.
 
By Ms. Hisae Sasaki, the Japanese calligraphy / flower arrangement artist
  
  
  
The artist, Ms. Sasaki, will be displaying an unprecedented style of work which features the  mixture of calligraphy with the art of flower arrangement, ikebana. 

This time, she will decorate her artwork, using camellia from the island of Ooshima, Japan.

Last October, the island was hit by a typhoon, which triggered a mudslide that swept away many people and their houses. Ooshima has been known for its beautiful camellia flowers that grow everywhere in the island. Using camellias that survived the typhoon, the artist created her artwork, and asked a photographer to take pictures of her creations. Together with calligraphy and fresh flowers, she will decorate the pictures of her Ooshima camellia artwork. 

Proceeds from the Ooshima camellia artwork will go to Ooshima survivors.

Continuing its mission working with children in conflict zones, Rogue Foundation
completed an art project with Syrian refugee children in camps close to the Lebanese border in November.

  
Expanding on the "I Am Haiti", "I Am Cambodia" and "I Am Afghanistan" projects, the "I Am Syria" is a collaboration with and is in support of the NGO Relief and Reconciliation for Syria. 
  
An exhibition of the children's paintings will be held at Rogue Space | Chelsea March 20-24 with all proceeds from art sales being returned to fund a program of trauma support for children who have been affected by the conflict.  
  
Longue Journey
  
The children are survivors from a siege by government troops that leveled the city of Qusayr, 10 Km from the Lebanese border.  In addition to the casualties inflicted by the bombing, even more refugees were killed at they fled towards neighboring Lebanon, snipered continuously from the air and by ground troops.
  
The 10km journey to the border took 8 days, mostly by cover of dark, as refugees crawled through underbrush to avoid detection.  Few families survived without at least one fatality.  On arrival in Lebanon, families were then arrested and imprisoned by Lebanese authorities and held for weeks in overcrowded prisons before being released to build their own camps.  They are not recognized as refugees by Lebanon where they now number over a million in a country with a population of 3 million.  The conflict in Syria is now being recognized as the worst genocide of the 21st century since fighting began in Syria, April 2011.
  
Footprints 
  
The key image of the show is a 12 foot long canvas depicting the children's footprints in paint, more dense at the beginning and thinning towards the end to reflect the loss of lives incurred in their migration.  
  
The children were asked to paint memories of their life in Syria and of the life they hoped to live in Lebanon.
  
You are invited to an exhibition of their work.  Paintngs and drawings are priced between $100-$200 and all funds are returned directly to the children to further their education.  
  
Rogue Foundation is socially conscious organization founded by Rogue Space | Chelsea gallery owner and documentary filmmaker Kevin O'Hanlon.  Its goal is to empower children in conflict zones and challenged environments around the world through creativity and creative solution finding.
  
Expanding is a collaboration with and is in support of the NGO Relief and Reconciliation for Syria.
