Bridges Restaurant will host an exhibit by acclaimed Balinese artist Karyana with a dinner and art auction on 23 November , to benefit Yayasan Bali Peduli’s new FREE HIV/AIDS testing and treatment clinic in Ubud, funded by a grant through Rotary Club Bali Ubud Sunset.
Bridge’s Evolutionary Evening will feature a gastronomic 3 course menu by Chef Nicolas, live entertainment and auction. Festivities begin at 17:30 with cocktails......and let the bidding begin!
Proceeds from dinner, auction, and sales of all art though March will help support Bali Peduli to target women and children at risk of HIV/AIDS.
"Bridges is proud of its ongoing program, Building Bridges In Our Community,“ says founder Claude Chouinard, “and we are especially pleased to support a much-needed HIV/AIDS clinic in our under-served area, where over 1% of pregnant women are HIV+. Participation by Rotary Club Bali Ubud Sunset also helps us increase our impact and builds yet another Bridge in our community.”
I Ketut Karyana has developed an unusual technique combining watercolor with oil and ink to explore his series Evolution. Born on Lombok and nurtured in a government-sponsored art community in Mataram, Karyana was also inspired by the rich Balinese art scene to develop his own organic style.
Karyana is fascinated by evolution, saying, “the diversity of forms in the universe remains a mystery, and inspires me to create new forms of living beings.”
Karyana’s art will be available for viewing and purchase from November 16 through March 23.
