Proceeds from a new group show at VanGuard Gallery will benefit a school in Jjungo, Uganda.
The show opens at 6 p.m. Nov. 17 in the gallery, which is inside Stephen Wilson Stained Glass studio, 1469 Laurel St. The theme of the show is "Yonder," with proceeds directly benefiting the Bethany Centre Primary School in Jjungo, Uganda, founded by native Ugandan and LSU Alumnus Peter Kiwanuka.
The show's opening coincides with the Mid City Merchants' annual art hop, "White Light Night," and features work by more than 70 local and regional artists.
Festivities will include live music, food and drinks. Admission is free. Parking is accessible, and a shuttle will be available to other White Light Night participating businesses.
