Art Show To Benefit Habitat For Humanity

April 19, 2022

Artists Sheilagh Head [Luscious Landscapes] and Andy Detzer [Dazzling Gombeys] have joined forces in a spring celebration to benefit Habitat for Humanity Bermuda this Thursday. The show will open at the Habitat Store on Front Street, with both artists on hand to showcase their newest work.

Sheelagh Cooper, Chair of Habitat for Humanity, said, “Bermuda land and seascapes are absolutely her best work yet, and it’s so exciting to see her new abstracts that are just delicious. These are beautifully contrasted with Andy Detzer‘s dazzling Gombeys. Andy’s large and brilliantly coloured Gombeys are eye popping, as many awards that he has received attest.

“The evolution of the Habitat store has been quite amazing to watch, as more and more art has been donated, it has gradually become as much as art gallery as it is a source of high end and previously owned furniture. Our location and the vast amount of window space has made the store ideal for the display of art.

“Canadian and American tourists are all very familiar with Habitat for Humanity, and most of them have Habitat ReStores in their neighbourhoods, so they are delighted to pop in to see what a Bermuda version of a ReStore looks like.

“If anything, the store benefited from Covid, as people trapped at home began to look around them and decide it was time for a change. So many folks were generous enough to donate their household furnishings to the ReStore, and often, in the process, would pick up a chair here or lamps there, making it profitable.

“It’s lovely to see peoples increasing commitment to saving the planet through reusing, repurposing and recycling. All of this has been a tremendous boom to our capacity to continue to meet our goal of 12 to 15 projects a year.

“The artists have each donated one of their paintings to be raffled off the night of the event. Join us for the celebration of the work by Sheilagh Head and Andy Detzer from 4pm to 6.30pm on Thursday, April 21st at the Habitat Store on Front Street.”
