Art Magnet, a non-profit organization sponsored by the New York Foundation of the Arts, will be hosting a photography exhibit to benefit the children of Artists For Charity. AFC is an orphanage located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It is home to children who are orphans and HIV positive. The proceeds from the sale of the exhibit's photos will go to provide the children with educational and other types of equipment. Several of the children are artists. We also hope to sponsor a few of these individuals to New York for summer art classes in 2011 or 2012.
Globally, children are thought of as cute, innocent, joyous creatures. However, we know that there are many children who, for a myriad of reasons, have been forced to face a reality that is stark and difficult although not without some childhood pleasure.
We are looking for dynamic photos that capture children's wiles and resilience when mired in unfavorable circumstances such as sickness, poverty, oppression or excessive responsibility or domination. We are also interested in EVOCATIVE photos that capture the innocence and joy of children as long as they are not "commercial," i.e., lollipops, toys and ribbons.
*All forms of photography are encouraged. *All submission are free.

Ouchi Gallery No, not "ouch." Pronounced OOH-WOO-CH-I, Ouchi is Japanese for "home" or "house." Our gallery has this name because it displays works by contemporary Japanese artists in a home-like setting.
