Sisters Beaubien, Cervenka Set Up Event in Detroit to Benefit Disadvantaged Women
DETROIT, Mich. – Siena Heights University’s Sister Mary Beaubien, OP, and Sister Barbara Cervenka, OP, are having an art exhibit and sale beginning Nov. 11 at the Swords Into Plowshares Peace Center and Gallery at the Central Methodist Church in downtown Detroit.
Beaubien, the archivist at Siena Heights, is offering hand-embroidered goods made by women of the Ratanang Project in Kroonstad, South Africa. The Ratanang Project aims to alleviate poverty and promote sustainable development in the poorest areas of South Africa. Disadvantaged women traditionally make up the group, and the proceeds from the sales go back to those women.
Cervenka, a member of the SHU art faculty, is offering hand-made quadras from Peru.
The show runs into January 2007, with gallery hours from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and by appointment. The church is located on Woodward Avenue near Comerica Park.
An opening for the show is scheduled from 1-4 p.m. Saturday.
