We See Your Scars Award

About Me

Thanks for dropping by! My name is Mercedes, owner, and artist of Art by Sades. Art by Sades is where art and affirmations meet, encouraging women like myself to "love all shades of you."

We See Your Scars Award

This fundraiser is the added component to my debut exhibition Battle Scars. For more information on this event click here.
The We See Your Scars Award is my way of showing the women of our community, that we see them. Giving back was an important component of this event because I truly want to create a legacy with not only the physical pieces of my art but the idea of it. The funds raised on this platform and 20% of my art sales will go directly to three local single mothers who have been going through a hard time (loss of job, housing hikes, loss of affordability).

The application will be available during June of 2023, open to women living in Broward County. The three selected winners who have demonstrated their need will be awarded the prizes.

Help me to offer this lifeline to three families in need!
