FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Kill Date April 10)
VETERAN MILITARY PHOTOJOURNALIST HOLDS ART SHOW TO SUPPORT OUR WOUNDED SERVICE MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES
Jupiter, Fla. – The Artists Association of Jupiter and Unique Glass Art presents local photographer and Operation Freedom Veteran, Liesl Marelli, for a photography exhibit called “Honor and Serve” at A Unique Art Gallery April 10, 2013, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Profits from the exhibit will be shared with The Renewal Coalition.
Artist Liesl Marelli served as a military photojournalist in the Army for nine years. During her time in service, she deployed to Iraq where she documented the war efforts made by American Soldiers and Marines. Marelli strove to capture and share moments with viewers to help provide insight to a perspective they may not otherwise know. Each photograph she exhibits captures a moment in time where the viewer can visualize the outcome they see and feel. It’s through this freedom of thought that she strove to capture the American spirit.
“I appreciate the opportunity to offer a window into my military life, particularly while I was deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom,” said Marelli. “Sharing profits from the show with my brothers and sisters in arms is important to me because although I’m no longer serving in the military, the lifestyle never left my heart,” said the West Palm Beach resident.
Local musician Marc Souza, guitarist and singer, will perform opening night of the exhibit. The “Honor and Serve” is free and open to the public. The exhibit will remain on display at A Unique Art Gallery until Saturday May 4, 2013.
The Renewal Coalition’s mission is to assist wounded service members and their families in their transition from military to civilian life or back to active duty by offering a retreat experience at Florida residences with the intent of providing these families a relaxed, pleasant, and welcoming environment. We focus on the family sharing time together without the worries of expenses. Lodging, meals, entertainment, ground travel and even the small amenities are the responsibility of the Renewal Coalition and NOT the service members and their families. www.renewalcoalition.org.
