An artist from the other side of the globe is lending his talents to help the homeless in Lynchburg.

Warstreets Gallery is hosting a "Kazakh Art Show" this month.  It features the work of an artist from Kazakhstan, who normally sells his prints in London and New York.

This is the first time the artist has ever allowed anyone to make copies of his art.  He made an exception for Warmstreets Gallery, because their profits go to support the homeless.  Many of the prints are being sold for $30.00, a fraction of what they would normally cost.

Each image in the show tells a story about Kazakhstan's history.

"It tells about the culture of Kazakhstan and the people there," said Rick Hughes, owner of Warmstreets Gallery.  "The artwork could stand on its own.  It's beautiful art."

Representatives from the Embassy of Kazakhstan visited Lynchburg today for the opening of the art show.

Warmstreets Gallery is located in the Riverviews Art Space in downtown Lynchburg.
