Guam - Guam's Louis Vuitton store is doing its part to promote local art. Tonight launches "Earth Elements", a twenty-six piece series of abstract paintings by local artist Ric Castro. According to LV general manager Edouard Faore, a portion of proceeds from sold artwork will benefit the Council on the Arts and Humanities Agency's Masters Program, which helps to preserve Chamorro culture.

"The idea that we had was to find a local artist, and he's one of the most talented on island today," explained Faore. "It was also matching with Ric's expectation - we wanted to show his new paintings, so we discussed together the fact that it's linked to CAHA was something that we enjoyed, that's it. So we had a good feeling together and so this is a good opportunity to match this art with our store."

The exhibition starts tonight at 6:30pm in the Tumon Sands Plaza and will continue through September.
