Call to artists - See it, Hear it, Speak out!
See it, Hear it, Speak out is about the elimination of violence against women. Throughout history, women around the world continue to be impacted by violence in many forms. This violence may be in the form of domestic violence, rape, child marriage, female genital mutilation, human trafficking, acid burning, etc. This exhibition will feature art by female artists about this subject matter. Who better to speak of these atrocities than women.

current quarter donation recipient
The Desert Angel was started by Louise Downs Blain in October 2001, she wanted to let our deployed troops know that someone cared and was thinking about them. The Troops gave her the name "Desert Angel" because out of the desert comes a box from someone they don't even know - it must be an angel ~ it must be "The Desert Angel"
We collect, pack, and mail needed items to our Troops. Always including words of encouragement and hope. Adding extra items to pass out the native people of the countries that our Troops are stationed in. Throwing in some fun stuff or school supplies to give to the children. In other words, we show our Troops they are not forgotten in deeds, not just words. Changing our world, one box at a time ~ Making a difference!
The boxes are now named "Miracle Boxes" in honor of Ortonville, Michigan's fallen hero, PFC Joseph A. Miracle, US Army Airborne of the 173rd. Joseph was in Afghanistan only 35 days when he gave his life defending his unit.
Packing parties are scheduled every second Thursday of the month at various locations. We hope to have one at the gallery during this quarter., date and time will be announced later.
Recently, The Desert Angel has been supporting law enforcement. Macomb, Wayne, and Oakland Sheriffs Department as well as Fenton, Linden, Argentine police departments and the Genesee Couty Sheriffs Departmenthave been honored.
