"Each Art Piece is a Rendering of Compassion"
by Marilyn Turkovich


Art isn't captured only in shows and installations. Art is everywhere in raw form‚ÄĒand as a part of this year's¬†Global Gala¬†the Charter is introducing¬†a Gallery¬†filled with wonderful creations from an extraordinary group of people‚ÄĒeach taking an idea, feeling or passion, adding the raw ingredients and creating a personal masterpiece.

Some of these master creators are shown in the picture above. When you visit our webpage and the gallery, you'll see a carousel of images depicting one piece of art from each contributing artist. Then you'll see the composite presentation of all of our artists themselves. Click on their individual pictures to not only see their art but read their stories. You are visiting a gallery, and just as each gallery visit demands time to immerse yourself in the art, you'll need time to reflect and think about how you can own or gift this original piece of art. Continue reading here.

 "Growing up in Afghanistan, I have had plenty of opportunities to experience hurt and loss. What's motivated me to explore forgiveness has been realizing the collateral damage that unforgiveness can cause, including losing my trust and confidence in others. These others were often just bystanders or guilty by association. Therefore I was victimizing many innocent folk without realizing it. Forgiveness may not be as sweet as revenge, but it seems to have fewer damaging side-effects."  ~Dr. Masi Noor

"Over the years, I've witnessed people put their friends or family into exile because of something they've said or done (or haven't said or done!). It's always seemed such a brutal response to being hurt. While I'm dead against prescribing forgiveness, I've come to believe forgiveness is the oil of personal relationships. People will let us down and forgiving is about letting go of the expectation that they won't."  ~Maria Cantacuzino
