Many of us travel through life, looking out the window of a car, bus, train or marshuka. For me, for the past three years, I have seen much of the Republic of Georgia in this very way. As a temporary resident, I often feel as if I am blessed with a window into this remarkable and beautiful place, yet when we travel in Georgia, I find myself always looking out the left side of the car.
The tabs across the top show all of the different series in the exhibition.
Showing these photos at the Lado Gudiashvili Exhibition Hall in Tbilisi is way for me to show a bit of what I have experienced during my time here. It is truly a personal reflection, a private peek into what I have seen and the people with whom I have shared wonderful moments. This exhibition is a private exhibition shown publicly, and reflects my own moments, images, and thoughts.
And as for the pink ribbon, this exhibition is a fundraiser to support breast cancer awareness and treatment. Breast cancer is the number one cause of death for women in Georgia between the ages of 14-49. This is a statistic we can all change, by encouraging women and girls to live healthy lives, to do monthly breast exams, and when appropriate get mammograms and treatment.
Thanks to the generosity of the Lado Gudiashvili Exhibition Hall, and the collaboration of the American Friends of Georgia, Inc, all proceeds from this event will support breast cancer awareness and treatment in Georgia.
The exhibition will be open in Tbilisi, Georgia until April 30, 2012 at the Lado Gudiashvili Exhibition Hall, Gudiashvili 11 (just down the street from the Parliamentary Library).
If you are interested in making a donation to the breast cancer fund send me a note or leave me a comment either on the blog or on Facebook.
