During the month of August, local artist Maria Casad will contribute all proceeds of her art sales of originals and prints to support the families experiencing homelessness who participate in Humility of Mary Housing, Inc.’s supportive housing program. Her artwork is found at Emma Rae’s Antiques and Uniques in DeWitt where it will be on display throughout the month of August.
The public is invited to a special reception with the artist on August 13 from 1-4 PM at the store at 714 6th Ave in DeWitt, IA.
Maria Casad also volunteers at Humility of Mary Housing. She explains why she volunteers there and why she selected HMHI as recipeint of the proceeds from this special exhibit:
“My heart goes out to the homeless and it is difficult to know how best to help. I feel HMHL is on the right tract with this program. I hope to volunteer more in the future.”
Casad is a regional muralist who has now turned her attention to painting and pen and ink artwork. Her work is displayed with those of other regional vendors at the unique DeWitt outlet. It’s open Monday-Thursday from 9:30 am-5 pm [summer hours only, Tuesdays open until 8 PM], Saturday from 10 am-5 pm, and Sunday from 11:30 AM-4 PM.
We so appreciate Maria’s generosity to our families! Do support her sale and attend her reception. When you patronize this local artist, your purchase also benefits the Quad Cities Area by helping the most vulnerable.
