    Henderson, NV – The Avery Burton Foundation (ABF), a 501c.3 Nevada nonprofit, was selected as the official partner for the Desert Valley Gallery in Tivoli Village-Summerlin, 410 S. Rampart Blvd., Suite 145, as the gallery hosts two acclaimed African artists, Prince Duncan-Williams and Joseph Muchina Mwangi, May 16, 2024, from 6 to 9 p.m., the public is invited.

“May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and this art show and fundraiser are in alignment with art being a storytelling medium,” ABF Board Member Dr. Jeanette Lee said. “The event is an excellent fit with ABF’s mission of using storytelling to improve conversations regarding mental health issues plaguing individuals and families nationwide.

“I love these two artists’ works,” Dr. Lee added. “I would consider buying one of the artworks, as I think they are beautiful. ABF is honored to be considered and approached by so many different organizations wanting to collaborate with us. We look forward to more collaborations in the future.”

African acrylic artist Mwangi was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya. He is a self-taught painter. His respect and admiration for the Maasai tribe in Africa led him to focus his artistry on this unique tribe. Since 2015, Mwangi has been a featured resident artist at the famed Karen Blixen Museum in Nairobi.

The acclaimed artist will be donating three pieces of his artwork (valued at $550 each) for the fundraiser to benefit ABF.

Avery Burton Foundation Hosts Second Annual 'Hike and Heal' Event

The Avery Burton Foundation hosted its second annual “Hike and Heal” event on Saturday.

Community members came together to get outdoors in Boulder City for the walk.

Many studies show the correlation between getting outside and mental health; wellness can boost endorphins and serotonin levels. Hormones that help improve mood and cognition.

The foundation is dedicated to bringing awareness to the cause.

“It’s named after my son Avery Burton. He had a major depressive episode after graduating college in 2017 and eventually wound up taking his life. We wanted to do something to bring awareness to mental health and depression issues, so we started this foundation,” Reggie Burton, founder of the Avery Burton Foundation, said

The foundation continues to partner with the community by providing scholarships, mental health, first aid training, and more.
