Hope Through the Arts Thursday at Food City

Thursday evening, Feb. 7, 4-8 p.m., the local food banks of Cottonwood and Cornville will host "Hope Through the Arts," a celebration of individual and community hope conducted by a wide variety of performance and visual arts at the Food City parking lot on 89A in Cottonwood.

Featuring musical artists as well as painters, sculptors, dancers and other gifted people, talented groups from as far as Australia and across Arizona will use their skills to communicate a spirit of hope.  

Included in the evening's celebration are The Hollands, 21st century nomadic travelers originally from Australia with a knack for engaging audiences and rousing a sing-a-long, Ian Genarri, who for 10 years has been a performer, song writer, recording artist and motivational speaker, Hope Through Art, a troupe of visual artists based in Phoenix whose paintings, photography and crafts communicate faith, hope and optimism, and Amber Hunter whose journal entries were transformed into poetry and song to tell the story of her journey from tears, prayers and a heart spilled out to courage and freedom. 

A silent auction of some of the work of Hope through Art will be conducted and other pieces will be presented free of charge. Also present will be face painting, readings, dance and a bar-b-q with hot dogs, hamburgers, sno-cones, and beverages. Donations will be received for the sponsoring food banks of the Verde Valley, Old Town Mission, Cornville Mission and New Hope Food Outreach. 

For further information call Greg Roeller, director of Hearts for the Hungry, 928-254-7069, or Mark Pelletier, director of Old Town Mission, 928-301-8495, or Bill Voss of the Cornville Food Bank, 928-300-2833.
