Art by Clara & Ruby Fassett
At UUCWF we like to think that our love is global. It sure seems to be so! The Fassett family has spent the last year living in Gulu, Uganda and their girls, Clara and Ruby, have donated these beautiful original works of art to our Love Wins Gala/Auction! What an amazing contribution to this fund-raising effort! We hope to get maximum value from these paintings and, in truth, we would LOVE it if the winning bidder would allow these pieces to be “on loan” to our church for some period of time so everyone can enjoy their joyful colors and lovely depictions of life in Uganda. The Fassetts will be back in late August. Be sure to let them know how much you enjoyed seeing these paintings.
