June 1-29, Thurs/Fri: 12-4 & Sat: 10-4
HCAA’s Birdie Gallery, 5th & Cherry St.
FREE!
“Unique” (www.rarechromo.org) is an organization that helps families affected by rare chromosome disorders.  HCAA Juried Artist Nicole Tredup’s daughter, Skylar, has been diagnosed with Microdeletion 17p.13.3 not MDS (that is the entire name!) and Unique has helped her family tremendously with research, what little there is, on Skylar’s disorder. Unique does not ask for membership dues from families. Their only requirement to join is verification of the diagnosis.
Tredup wants to help both HCAA and Unique. In June, HCAA’s month long exhibit will be “unique” artwork from HCAA juried members. Also, on June 17, HCAA will host a block party inviting everyone from the art community, the special needs community, and anyone else who wants to have a good time! There will be a silent auction, lunch, and activities. All proceeds from fundraising will go equally to HCAA (50%) and Unique (50%). Tredup’s hope is that she can bring recognition to both organizations!
