Santa Monica’s P32 Gallery On Target To Raise $15,000 For Chase Foundation:

The newly opened P32 gallery in Santa Monica raised $9,000 for the Chase Foundation in the first week of its exhibition, “Filling the wHole.”

The exhibition runs until Dec. 4 with a goal of raising $15,000. More than 150 people attended the opening reception on Oct. 25.

“Filling the wHole” features new works by Howard Spunt and Ariel Gold,who are donating 20 percent of the revenue from the sale of their paintings to the Chase Foundation to benefit Chase Place at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA. The proceeds will be used to install a permanent, weekly art program for hospitalized patients.

The exhibition also includes a silent auction of paintings by patients at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA. The auction ends Dec. 4 and 100 percent of the proceeds from the auction go to the Chase Foundation.

“Filling the wHole” explores fulfillment – a wholeness of being. The artists demonstrate this through their use of color and form in creating non-representational abstract paintings.

P32 Gallery opened in October. It is a creative space where artists and collectors can meet and share both their passion for art and their commitment to philanthropy. The name represents the address at Pico and 32nd Street and the P also stands for philanthropy. Future exhibitions also will donate a percentage of sales to a charitable organization that focuses on children.

P32 Gallery is located at 3129 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica (caddy corner from Trader Joe’s). Gallery hours are Thursday- Saturday from 1 pm to 7 pm and by appointment. For more information contact Matt MacFarlane at 424.226.6175 or matt@p32gallery.com.

The goal of the Chase Foundation is to generate significant financial support for child life programs and to create healing play spaces for children in hospitals. It was founded by Susan and Robin Richards in memory of their son, Chase, who passed away shortly after his second birthday.

Cancer took his life, but in his last few weeks, he and his sisters were able to play, draw, be with other children and forget about his illness, even if only for a few minutes, thanks to child life specialists. The Richards family is dedicated to helping secure financial resources to see that every hospitalized child gains access to the Child Life program and its art, play, therapy and interactive programs.
