On June 29th, the group show “Kingdom Animalia” will open at Land Rover in Anaheim Hills, CA with an impressive line-up of artists whose work will raise funds for the Big Life Foundation, which works to protect endangered species and ecosystems in Africa.
Curators artist Joey Remmers and Roq La Rue gallery founder (and Hi-Fructose Editor at Large) Kirsten Anderson were impressed with Big Life Foundation’s work abroad and decided to split the proceeds from each painting between the artist and the charity, 50/50. ”I suggested [working with] Big Life Foundation because they are an organization that is on the ground making a difference,” said Anderson. “Their presence on part of the border between Kenya and Tanzania has had a tangible effect and I have so much respect and admiration for the whole Big Life team for working tirelessly and thanklessly to save creatures from the brink of extinction due to human greed. It really is a critical time.”
