Community in Wonderland: Creative Spirits 2010

Last Friday was the annual Guma Mami art auction.  Considering it was wine free the turn out was pretty good.  There were so many beautiful pieces of art work and lots of smiling faces.  The auction helps to support Guma Mami Inc.  Guma Mami supports persons with mental illnesses.  Most of the art work at the auction is art work produced by the clients.  But there are also awesome local artists who donate art work for the auction, like my friends Nella and Luke.  

This was the second year that I did henna for the show.  I do henna in exchange for donations to Guma Mami.  It's an awesome feeling and a lot of fun, but by the end of the night my hands are hurting, I'm super hungry, and my eyes feel like they're going to fall out of their sockets.  It's so worth it though.  :) Many people here don't really know about henna so it's a good chance for me to share all that I've learned through reading.

  1. Looks like a nice event. I really like the photo of your henna work.

  2. Man, we need more events like this in the CNMI. Good stuff!
