FAIR TRADE exhibit in Los Angeles

Standard

We would like to suggest to our LA friends an interesting exhibit. All of the works featured in this show are created in statement of global standards and fair trade practices. Alongside this beautiful exhibition, there will be a 3-day marketplace for fair trade goods.

Exhibit Opening Saturday September 17th from 7 to 10pm  at The Loft at Liz’s 

453 S. La Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036

The Loft at Liz’s exhibit entitled “Fair Trade” is dedicated to featuring works that speak to this increasingly relevant and transformative topic.  Our featured artists will be creating original works in statement of fair trade practices and others will actually incorporate the use of fair trade products as their medium.

Fair trade is an organized social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries make better trading conditions and promote sustainability. The movement advocates the payment of a higher price to producers as well as higher social and environmental standards. It focuses in particular on exports from developing countries to developed countries, most notably handicrafts, coffee, cocoa, sugar, tea, bananas, honey, cotton, wine, fresh fruit, chocolate, flowers and gold.

Featured Artists:

Stéphane Tourné
Ofunne Obiamiwe
Raksha Parekh
Pascal Giacomini
Andre Vanzijl

*Also featured for our opening reception will be a guest performance by musician WolfRobe.


Instrumentalist, vocalist and social activist, WolfRobe, will perform his unique brand of instrumental and vocal sounds.  From African tribals to hip-hop, jazz and spoken word, WolfRobe is a truly dynamic and multitalented performer.  His work transcends traditional soundscapes, awakening a sense of clarity in both a spiritual and primal sense.  You certainly won’t want to miss this amazing performance beginning at 8:45pm on Saturday September 17th.
