Beyond Art Event
Updated: Jun 18, 2019
Sharing my art through food and supporting women in creative ways.
I was honored to share my art in the form of food at the Beyond Art Charity Auction. The newly formed non-profit showcased donated art from local artist. Proceeds from the auction are dedicated to helping women through the charity Women for Women International. This organizations empowers women whose lives have been affected by conflict and war. Their programs offer educational opportunities, health and wellness support and connects them to networks in order to rebuild their lives for a promising future.
I was connected with the founders of Beyond Art through my membership in the Professional Women’s Network of Norway. Through PWN, I have been able to learn how women can support each other in business, education and the community. Through my work with food, I am able to share my story and create a space where we can empower each other through our skills and talent.
Close to 100 guests filled the room at Sentralen to enjoy the food, art and mingling with a international crowd. At this event, I prepared a variety of crostinis to complement the colorful crowd and beautiful art. They included:
Avocodo, chilli, lime and coriander
Radish slices with herb butter
Roasted aubergine with pomegranate, feta, parsley
Mushrooms with cream cheese and chives
Cherry tomatoes, garlic and basil
To top off the savories, folks ejoyed mini-buttercream cupcakes with glasses of sparking wine.
