Shari Jayawardhana, a student of Saumya Jayasekera, in collaboration with twenty child artists with special needs, will hold an exhibition that conveys a sense of great joy to the viewers amidst life’s challenges.
This exhibition aims to raise awareness about the unique abilities of Sri Lankan child artists with disabilities. The artworks demonstrate the resilience of the child artists and their journey in dealing with their struggles and overcoming their limitations. Part sale proceeds of Shari’s paintings and all sale proceeds from the children’s work will support the education and career prospects of hearing-impaired school children at the School for the Deaf, Ratmalana, and Nuffield School for the Deaf & Blind, Jaffna.
“Art plays a vital role in creating social change. It helps us to pause, reflect and rekindle our hope for a better future,” noted Shari.
“EUPHORIA is your invitation into our world. You will be forever changed as you allow yourself to feel and experience what you experience. Let it impact your heart and create a better tomorrow,” stated the child artists with disabilities.
This novel art exhibition will create a broader awareness and appreciation of the unique abilities of hearing-impaired child artists.
“EUPHORIA” art exhibition will be open to the public on July 8th and 9th.
