TRUCKEE, Calif. — On Feb. 7, 5-8 p.m., Riverside Studios will team up with High Fives Foundation and the CR Johnson Healing Center.

With a Lion’s roar just one week before Valentine’s Day, expect an edgy art show that will leave your heart warm and fuzzy.

High Fives Foundation is dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes who have suffered life-altering injuries. The CR Johnson Healing Center is umbrellaed under High Fives Foundation and offers athletes many rehabilitation models, giving them an opportunity to get back to doing what they love most: winter sports.

CR Johnson was a brother to Riverside Studios, and for one month out of the year, Riverside hosts the Lion Heart art show with proceeds benefiting the CR Johnson Healing Center.

More than 30 artists have contributed panels that will be on exhibition and for sale.

It is a way to purchase an amazing piece of art and give to the community at the same time.

Richard Downs, whose artwork reflects love, will be featured.

All are welcome to this free event. Live DJ, light appetizers and drinks will be provided. Catch the Lion Heart art show at 10060 Donner Pass Road in downtown Truckee. Call 530-587-3789 for more information.
