The Dominican Republic by Marie Oliver

This month the Bay Breeze Art Gallery is hosting an exhibition of Dominican Republic Art created by Marie Oliver. These pictures are a collection of memories of Marie's third tour to the Dominican where her mission was to assist a local Bathurst group of missionaries in building a new church, a school and helping the local people in any way they could. Each year this group brings clothing, medical supplies, educational tools and much more donated by their churches and the community at large.

As of today most of the paintings have been sold and all the funds will be donated by Marie for to supporting the 2011 mission back to the Dominican Republic where assistance to the local people is greatly appreciated. The time, artistry and materials were also donated by Marie to make this fund raiser possible.

There are still 6 paintings in the larger size (24 x 24") available for sale at the unbelievable price of $100.00 each. The fall hours for the Bay Breeze Art Gallery are Tuesdays to Saturdays from
10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Even if you are not in the market for such a bargain please drop in to see the exhibit and life as it is depicted in this collection of inspiring works!

  1. Hi Adrienne:

    Good blog - nice to see Marie getting the recognition she so richly deserves for all of her efforts.

    I was at the gallery and really enjoyed seeing all of these beautiful paintings. I hope she manages to sell the remaining pictures.
