G O D D E S S is a group art show that reflects on the wisdom and guidance of the divine feminine. This show is a dedication to Brenda Navas (1977-2008), a prominent business woman in our community whose successful entrepreneurship led to the development of our gallery space. Brenda, a native of Guatemala, and her husband Chris Achong, a native of Trinidad built a financial services company from the ground up, which currently comprises of nearly 200 active representatives and is still growing. In late January of 2008, Brenda died of complications from a sudden stroke at the young age of 30.
In Brenda's honor, a portion of our proceeds from the sale of this artworkwill be donated to The Hazel K. GoddessFund for Stroke Research in Women toassist their efforts in education, outreach, research and endowment for thefuture. The Goddess Fund, based in New York City, speaks ofone clear and compelling intention: toeliminate the impact of stroke in women's lives, the lives of their familiesand society at large (www.thegoddessfund.org).
