We are thrilled that the South Bay Art Association is holding Repurposed & Reimagined Found Objects, an art exhibition, and auction to benefit CEED at the Washington Lodge on May 18. SBAA asked artists to create and donate works of art using found materials.  The results are sure to be amazing.  Join us to see the works and maybe you’ll go home with a new treasure and support CEED at the same time.
