Rwanda’s Beloved Children benefitting the Association Mwana Ukundwa takes place on Sat from 7-10pm at 111 Hampton St, FW.

Artspace 111, a studio that also represents a small circle of local talents, including mixed-media artist Jo Ann Mulroy and hyperrealist painters John Hartley, Nancy Lamb, and Leslie Lanzotti, is expanding its impact on Fort Worth and the art world in general. Not long ago, the studio/gallery underwent a major facelift, raising its profile from that of a charming dive to a sweet place for a wedding reception. The studio/gallery also hosts the best and most visible bashes on Spring and Fall gallery nights, and now, along with the rest of the 111 crew, the creative directors — twin brothers and hyperrealist painters Daniel and Dennis Blagg — are taking on philanthropy.
On Saturday, the Blaggs et al. will throw a holiday party and silent auction whose proceeds will benefit the Association of Mwana Ukundwa. An international nonprofit Christian organization founded in 1995, the group was created, according to its web site, www.mwanaukundwa.org, “to contribute to the socioeconomic reintegration [into global society] of children at risk ... particularly orphans.” The benefit, Rwanda’s Beloved Children, came about as a way for 111 to showcase photographs taken by Katherine Carelock, who had spent a summer in the war-torn nation on a continent where war seems part of a never-ending cycle.

Rwanda’s Beloved Children benefitting the Association Mwana Ukundwa takes place on Sat from 7-10pm at 111 Hampton St, FW. Tickets are $50 per person or $250 for a cocktail table of six. Call 817-909-7490 or visit events@artspace111.com. For more on Mwana Ukundaw, visit www.amurwanda.org.
