Eden Village and CFCC
Eden Village of Wilmington will be a 31-unit tiny home community specially designed to provide permanent homes for chronically homeless individuals including patients of the local hospital. Many patients of the medical center experience chronic illness, which are treatable but require consistent living circumstances to improve treatment results. A home is an essential component to long-term health care for these individuals and a proven, permanent solution to chronic homelessness.
CFCC is proud to partner with Eden Village with their work in helping the homeless. CFCC is not only helping with the Wilma Daniels Gallery art show "Eden Village a Collective Exhibition" and "Silent Auction" to help benefit Eden Village, but other departments will be working with Eden Village beyond the show. CFCC departments and their students that will be working with Eden Village is the Fine Arts, Dental, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Phi Theta Kappa (Honor society of CFCC Students), and EWD- Economic Workforce and Development. It is our pleasure to have our students and departments involved in real and tangible ways to make a difference in our community and to create a partnership with Eden Village.
About Wilma Daniels Gallery Art Show for Eden Village
The Wilma Daniels Gallery is pleased to be hosting a "Eden Village A Collective Exhibition" and "Silent Auction". Eden Village A Collective Exhibition is an art show featuring several Cape Fear Community College artists that were inspired to support the endeavors of Eden Village of Wilmington, including Ben Billingsley, Geoff Calabrese, Jennifer Mace, and Sharon Wozniak-Spencer. The four artists wanted to work together to help sell their art with a portion of their proceeds going to Eden Village. Wozniak-Spencer was inspired to put this show together for Eden Village as her own work embodies "Friends in Need" as she thoughtfully refers to anyone but especially the homeless. She was inspired to want to give back with her own art, and care for those in need from her graduate work at the Academy of Art, San Francisco where she completed her MFA and her original show at Cameron Art Museum called "Faces of Courage" where she presented her Master's Thesis work.
The "WDG Silent Auction" is 18 select pieces, that involves many artists within the Wilmington and Leland community: Ben Billingsley, Geoffrey Callabrese, Kathryn Ciarroca, Richard Conn, Daisey Faith, Ann Hair, Charles Harlan, Barbara Bear Jamison, Lisa Lightfoot, Jennifer Mace, Alicia Mercer, Ann Parks McCray, Donna Robertson, Elizabeth Sheets, Mark Weber, Stephen Wozniak, and Sharon Wozniak-Spencer
with 100% of the silent auction proceeds going to Eden Village, that will run the length of the exhibit.
