Communications News: Art for life

An exhibition of 20 paintings by Bosnian refugee artist Pero Mandic will be shown in London next month to highlight Christian Aid's work to rebuild lives in Serbia. The charity, which part-funded the project alongside the Arts Council England, provides logistical help to families displaced by the Balkan conflict with local partner the Ecumenical Humanitarian Organisation. Mandic's work depicts people caught in a conflict beyond their control. The fact that his previous work was lost when he fled his home in 1995 reflects the plight faced by many people assisted by the two charities. Crimson Harvest will run from 9-22 June at St James' Church, Piccadilly, to coincide with Refugee Week from 14-20 June.
