Join us to celebrate the artwork and creative process of Tom Swanston & Gail Foster. Tom and Gail are longtime friends of the Serenbe community and the Nygren family, helping to establish Serenbe's artist in residence program and develop the Art Farm as we know it today. Their creative contributions are celebrated in the Serenbe community.
This event features a live auction that will run from May 15 - June 17.
In 2013, Gail had an accident that left her with a spinal cord injury. With 4 weeks at Northside Hospital and 6 weeks in the Shepherd Center and intense rehabilitation ever since, she has continued to paint and inspire everyone she has met along the way, with husband and fellow artist Tom providing support since the beginning. Serenbe and the Art Farm are excited to partner with Help Hope Live to exhibit artworks in Grange Hall by both Tom and Gail, all of which will be up for auction on GiveSmart to support the necessary home accessibility renovations to their house. These improvements provide Gail with a safe space for continual recovery after her early 2018 surgery for years to come.
Proceeds from the Art For Good event will be donated to the nonprofit Help Hope Live in honor of Gail Foster via the Southeast Catastrophic Injury Fund. Funds raised will be used to offset uncovered medical and expenses related to her home accessibility renovation only. More information is available at: https://helphopelive.org/campaign/6326/
Donations made in honor of a specific individual, or in response to campaign solicitations, are restricted by region only and do not obligate Help Hope Live to allocate funds towards a specific individual, as the IRS would deem such donations to be private gifts, which are not tax deductible. Clients receive support according to their medical and financial need. Help Hope Live is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Information: 800.642.8399.
