Postcards for Aleppo

Fundraiser sale April 22

The Catalyst Gallery will host a fundraiser and reception on Saturday, April 22, from 5 to 9 p.m. for Art for Aleppo: Postcards to Humanity, to benefit the Syrian Children’s Relief Fund. For the past two months, the gallery has been accepting submissions of postcards with images and words responding to the crisis in Syria. The postcard art will be for sale and the proceeds donated.

Loretta Olek, a poet and psychotherapist who volunteered in a Syrian refugee camp, and Simon Dudar, a Haldane teacher who uses problem- and project-based learning to address real-world situations, will speak about their work and experiences. For details, see
