Benefit Art Show for Tattoo Artist "Moments of Clarity"
WANTS / NEEDS Community Arts Collective,
208 E Main St., Ventura, CA, 93001,
WANTS / NEEDS Community Arts Collective is hosting a benefit art show, titled "Moments of Clarity," for local tattoo artist, Allie Greenberg, featuring donated art by local tattoo artists. Allie's a talented local Santa Barbara tattoo artist, who worked on the 805 Ink tattoo team. Due to a degenerative nerve disease and stenosis in her cervical spine, Allie’s health has taken a rapid decline and she has been forced to slow down and focus on her treatment. Her journey towards a clear diagnosis and cohesive treatment plan has been long and full of obstacles; physically, mentally, and financially. The WANTS / NEEDS team hopes that the show can help ease her burdens, so Allie can focus on doing what she loves most, creating beautiful art.
The benefit show will feature an inspired collection of donated art by 21 local tattoo artists throughout Ventura, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles counties, including work created by Allie. All of the "Moments of Clarity" pieces will be available in store and on the online shop from 2/11 - 3/19. 100% of all proceeds from the artwork sold during the show will be donated directly to Allie to help pay for her medical bills and treatment.
The gallery opening for the "Moments of Clarity" show will take place at WANTS / NEEDS Community Arts Collective on February 11th, with a celebration from 6-10pm.
