Art Africa Colour Cure - Women in Art
The highly patronized event was picturesque. Art Africa also guaranteed that part of the proceeds from paintings sold at the exhibition will be donated to the Korle-bu Breast Cancer Surgical Unit.
Some works were on large canvases, producing images that dwarfed the space around them, while others were smaller and invited close viewing. Various themes included: Abstract, Impressionism, Minimalism, The Body, Nature Personified, Womanhood, and Education among others.
Dignitaries and special guest present were: Nana Oye Bampoe-Addo (Former Minister of Gender, Childrenand Social Protection) attending on behalf of Lordina Mahama (Former First Lady of the Republic of Ghana and President of the Lordina Foundation); Maya Barakeh Amanor (President of the Global Women Development Network); Rita Appiah- Danquah (Clinical Psychologist, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital Breast Cancer Surgical Unit); Bridgette Harrington (President of Igire Coffee by women); Madam Charlotte Osei (UN International Elections Commissioner and the former Chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana); Kojo Choi (Founder and Chief Promoter of Art Africa) and many other dignitaries.
