On June 25, Combat Blindness International invites the community to see Brushmarks on the Water featuring artist Mary Jo Montgomery. The art show will benefit Combat Blindness International (CBI), a Madison-based nonprofit organization that eliminates preventable blindness around the world. Globally, there are 39 million people suffering from blindness; 80 percent of these cases are preventable. Attendees are encouraged to make donations to support CBI, and 50 percent of all proceeds from paintings sold will support CBI.
This event is open to the public from 11 am to 3 pm at the 3 Leaves Gallery, 5145 Glenwood Lane, Egg Harbor. The art includes avian wildlife portraits, peaceful landscapes of the Wisconsin countryside, and striking flowers painted in a variety of styles and sizes.
An international nonprofit organization, Combat Blindness International eliminates avoidable blindness worldwide by providing sustainable, equitable solutions for sight through partnerships and innovation. Combat Blindness International was founded in 1984 by Dr. Suresh Chandra of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. For more information visit combatblindness.org.
