Opened in 2003, the Senang Hati (Happy Hearts) Foundation is a Tampaksiring-based, not-for-profit group that assists the disabled. Also known as Yayasan Senang Hati, the foundation creates programs to foster self-confidence, physical and economic independence, and increase awareness in the general community of the rights of people with disabilities.

The fourth collaboration of its kind over the past 10 years, monies raised will be used in several projects such as education and setting up small businesses to enhance the lives of foundation members by empowering them to be economically independent in the future.

The Power of Creative Women

The current exhibition’s with the theme of ‘The Power of Creative Women,’ will be opened on April 23, 2013 to coincide with the birth date of Raden Ajeng Kartini – a pioneering figure from the late 1800s in the Indonesian struggle for women’s rights.

The evening will feature an auction of art by 5 artists: Ida Ayu Wiadnyani Manuaba, Putu Suriati, Kartika Sudibia, Nina Packer and Cheryl Lee. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Senang Hati Foundation.

The Artists

Ida Ayu Wiadnyani Manuaba – is an artists active in fund raising activities for Senang Hati Foundation. Dayu Wid’s association with Senang Hati Foundation dates from her enrolment in a formal painting class. Dayu participated in her first exhibition in 2006 at Arma Museum Ubud with Yayasan Senang Hati.

Putu Suriati – was born in Payogan, Kedewatan, Ubud. Putu never attended school or even left her house due to her affliction of polio, a part of her life since the age of five. She first started to paint with her uncle in Ubud when she was 13 years old.

Kartika Sudibia - As a form of a self-healing activity during her recovery from a life-threatening illness, Kartika Sudibia started to paint 3 years ago. She participated in her first charity exhibition last year at Sabadel, Spain raising funds to help educate children from a poor village in East Bali.

Kartika uses Elephants as a theme in exploring her artwork, symbolizing strength and wisdom.

Nina Packer - was born into a family of artists in Australia where her talent was nourished from early childhood. An emerging artist, Nina has established a strong following dating fro her debut solo exhibition in July 2012.

Attending life-drawing sessions since 2009 at Pranoto's Gallery has helped develop Nina's talent for capturing the human form and expression. Nina’s style varies from soft and gentle nudes to dramatic and bright portraits, employing impressionism and cubism to realize her paintings.

Living in Ubud, Nina has been a resident artist at BCAC Studio (Bali Center for Artistic Creativity) and Gallery for two years.

Cheryl Leewas - Australian born, Cheryl Leewas has demonstrated natural creativity from a very young age. She first picked up the paintbrush just a few years ago to create paintings that are bright, bold and fun.

A recent Moroccan collection has revealed a new classical bent. Continually evolving, her art is metamorphic with each brush stroke. Cheryl is in high demand for commissions; her pieces are constantly sought after as she fearlessly experiments with every possible medium and style.

Though diverse in scope, Cheryl's art mainly celebrates the feminine form. Cheryl lives in Ubud and has been a resident artist of BCAC for 2 years.

‘The Power of Creative Women’ exhibition will continue for 2 months from April 23 until June 18, 2013.
