Have you ever wondered who painted your favorite royal, politician or prominent figure?
Join internationally recognized painter and photographer, George H. Lewis, on Thursday, May 19th from 7 to 9 p.m. as he recounts his experiences painting the likes of former President of Nigeria, Olusegon Obasanjo, political scientist Joseph Nye, and more, to YPFP members.
With an invitation from MyBhutan, a social enterprise that hosts a travel platform for Bhutan, George recently visited Bhutan to paint prominent figures, and his oil paintings and photographs from his latest trip will be exhibited at Salomon Gallery in Tribeca.
Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will also be served. All paintings and photographs are for sale and a part of the proceeds will go to MyBhutan's non-profit.
Sarah Cahlan, Communications and Marketing Lead for MyBhutan, will provide an introduction on Bhutan and speak to the importance of art in promoting Bhutan.
The exhibit will also be open to the public on May 17-18 & 20-23.
Members can RSVP by logging into their accounts. Non-members can RSVP via Eventbrite.
MyBhutan is a social enterprise that nurtures emerging markets while simultaneously supporting traditional industries -- with the aim of reducing social inequality and preserving Bhutan’s ancient culture and pristine landscape. Their first enterprise, the mybhutan.com travel platform, applies smart technology to make booking a trip to Bhutan easy, personalized, and cost-effective while also creating more opportunities for Bhutanese to participate in the tourism market. Proceeds from each trip support Tarayana Foundation, a Bhutanese NGO that aids vulnerable communities in the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon.
