Erik Abel Supports Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts with Unique Art Collection

Written by:

Local artist Erik Abel has released a series of prints in which 15% of the proceeds will be donated to Waves For Water’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts. This limited edition series will be printed on FSC Certified birch plywood, which has been sourced sustainably and printed by a California based company. The texture of the wood makes every piece unique in it’s own.

In a recent press release Abel stated, “When Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast I felt compassion along with a sense of helplessness… What could I do to help? I’d heard from some friends over there that the damage was much worse and far spread than what we were seeing in the media. That’s when I saw one of the nonprofits I admire most, Waves for Water, doing an on the ground relief initiative in the damaged communities. That’s when I knew how I could help. Entire communities were devastated from Sandy and the recovery will take a long time and much support. There are still thousands of people without electricity. Even though Sandy isn’t the focus of the media anymore, there’s still so much work to be done and support needed on the East Coast.”

“Working with nonprofits is a very important part of what I do,” Abel explains. “As an artist, it allows me to create a bigger impact with my talents and give back to the communities and environment that inspire me. With this Waves for Water project we can provide immediate aid for those affected here while also supporting a great nonprofit that helps people around the world.”

 

 

Waves for Water has been using 100 percent of their donations raised from fundraisers, like Abel’s print series, to go directly to relief efforts. The non-profit organization is dedicated to providing clean water to communities around the world.
