LA Green Drinks at ART from the Ashes Gallery

LA Green Drinks Pasadena and WeHo/Silverlake 
Thursday, July 15th 
7pm - 10pm

This month Pasadena and West Hollywood GD are excited to co-host a special GD event in Glendale at the ART From the Ashes Gallery. Join us for a unique evening of thought-provoking art, inspiring conversation, fun green networking, organic beverages, and delicious bites from Porto's bakery.

ART From The Ashes Gallery
216 S Brand Blvd
Glendale CA

Be green and carpool or take public transit to this event! (Hint: click "Directions" on Google Maps, click on the bus icon, enter your starting location and time, and let LA Metro be your chauffeur!)

Art From The Ashes (AFTA) is a non-profit organization assembled to create artwork to benefit the communities, individuals and local businesses that have been devastated by fire.  
 "Our goal is to provide a cathartic avenue to communities affected by wildfire by transfiguring fire site debris into beautiful works of art. By using reclaimed materials as our medium, we hope to inspire & support the heart, mind and planet." Joy Feuer

The current exhibition is to benefit Glendale's Deukmejian Wilderness Park. Check out the AFTA  review on TreeHugger.

AFTA founder, Joy Feuer, will be speaking briefly at 8pm, so be sure to arrive by then! We will also have the opportunity to meet some of the artists throughout the evening.

 $10 suggested donation includes drink tickets and appetizers, and supports the ongoing work of Green Drinks and AFTA. 

Feel free to dress fancy for this special event, or come as you are. We welcome everyone.
