Join Us April 25, 2009 (View Event Invitation)
Every spring, the Park West Gallery® in Southfield becomes the “in” place to be as generous supporters gather to raise funds for the DMBA Foundation’s For The Seventh Generation program. Hosted by Park West Gallery® owners Albert and Mitsie Scaglione, the festive gala offers live music, wonderful food, and room after room of unusual and exciting items for attendees to bid on.
Featuring Limited Edition Photography Exhibit by Kelly Ramsey
The photos for sale in Gallery 2 are the signed limited edition works of Kelly Ramsey. As a referee of the 3rd Judicial Circuit Court, Family Division, Juvenile Section for Wayne County, Michigan, she has jurisdiction over hundreds of delinquency, abuse/neglect and adoption matters that are before the court.
A native Detroiter, Ramsey is the visionary behind the For the Seventh Generation. Her passion for children and the unique importance they have to a civilized society is not limited to her career life, however. She has traveled extensively throughout the world photographing children and families within the context of their homes.
In this exhibit, you'll find faces of children from Cambodia, China, Cuba, Egypt, Guatemala, Malawi, Thailand, Vietnam, Zambia and our own United States. Each photo reveals aspects of both the outer and the inner life of the subject through a clear and compassionate lens. Each child's face reminds us of the importance of each generation to our future.$100 from the sale of each photo will be donated to For The Seventh Generation
