Works of art featured at recent Everence open house
Local, national and international artists represented
More than 400 people attended a recent open house at the new Everence® facility in North Newton, which featured works of art that enhanced tours of the new offices.
Artists whose works were featured at the open house included Andy Brown, Chuck Buller, Michele Clark, Barbara Haynes, Jeff Heidel, Mary Lee McDonald, David Sloan Welfelt, Amer Ali and Ahmad Abdulrazzaq.
Ali and Abdulrazzaq are among more than a dozen Iraqi artists in exile whose works Common Humanity shows in exhibits throughout the U.S. The exhibits are part of Common Humanity’s peacemaking efforts to help build understanding, respect and friendship with the Arab and Muslim world.
Many of the pieces of art – available for purchase in the Everence office – were provided through a partnership with Carriage Factory Art Gallery of Newton.
