Some young Chattanooga artists get to show off their work for a good cause. The Palate 2 Pallette youth gallery opened tonight at the Church On Main.
Dozens of high school artists displayed their art. The theme for this year's juried event was Steampunk Carnival.
It allowed patrons to preview the art ahead of tomorrow's day-long Gallery stroll. The events benefits the Cranio-Facial Foundation which helps patients with facial birth defects, tumors, and trauma-related injuries.
"We're the only local non-profit organization that helps children with cranio-facial deformities that where 100 percent of the donations stay local. When we host this event, it is our signature event, and the proceeds from this help with our educational programs, "Dreams Can Come True" family camp which we will host next weekend at Camp Azahi. It also helps for food, travel and lodging for those traveling to the center," according to Terry Smyth, Executive Director of the Cranio-Facial Foundation.
The gallery is sponsored by the Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union.
