Calvin Lee went to the Greek island of Lesvos to help refugees  landing at night on rafts.   Thousands  of refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq drown every year in the Mediterranean Sea.  On First Friday, December 7,  Calvin will be showing  refugee art in watercolor and oil inspired by his   experience.  Also on show will be his conceptual sculpture "Life Vests" created with  life jackets.  People are encouraged to bring their life vests to add to the sculpture. Ninety percent of proceeds from all sales of refugee art, as well as  his landscapes, portraits, figures and calligraphy, will be donated to the Rocky Mountain Immigration Advocacy Network, a group of lawyers working pro bono to assist refugees applying for asylum status.  Archival prints and original art will be on show priced from $94.00 to $2900.00.  People can also visit   Rafael Fajardo's adjoining studio and play his "Crosser"  video game in which you are a refugee swimming across the Rio Grande River.   You succeed  if you avoid getting injured by debris and evade the border patrol.  Join Calvin for cheese, crackers, grapes and wine.
