Los Angeles Downtown Arts District Space (LADADspace), Angel City Brewery and Robert Reynolds Studio extend their sympathy and support to the people of Japan. We all share the deep worldwide concern over the mounting devastation from the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis as the heartbreaking losses continue to grow.
An initiative to support immediate relief to the people of Japan has been established by LADADSpace, Angel City Brewery and Robert Reynolds Studio.
In Support of the March 11 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief efforts, LADADSpace will donate all profits from the sales of the paintings by Robert Reynolds (on view at the gallery space at Angel City Brewery) directly to the Emergency Relief of the Japanese Red Cross Society, Japan. All the funds received by the Japanese Red Cross Society will be transferred to the Distribution Committee, which is formed around the local governments of the disaster-affected prefectures and will be distributed directly among the affected population of earthquake and tsunami.
The fundraising initiative starts Thursday March 31 and will go on till Sunday April 10.
You are able to select and purchase the artworks during all this period.
The paintings are on view at the Angel City Brewery gallery space located at 216 S. Alameda Street, Los Angeles 90012. The gallery is open Thursday and Friday from 5pm to 11pm ; Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to 11pm. By appointment on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
LADADspace – 501 (c)3 non-profit arts organization – is the fiscal receiver of the donation and will issue a receipt for the purchase price, which is treated as a donation and is tax deductible.
You are invited to the fundraising event that will take place on Thursday April 7 from 7pm to 10 pm at the Angel City Brewery Gallery (located at 216 S. Alameda Street, Los Angeles 90012).

Brian Kito of the Little Tokyo Public Safety Association will report about the present situation in the areas affected by the disaster and the immediate need of the Japanese people harmed by the tragedy.
