Click here for a news story about the recent Ritchie Boys reunion held at Fort Ritchie & FRCC.Click here for information about the traveling Ritchie Boys exhibit.Ritchie Boy and artist Si Lewen.
Contacted by Fort Ritchie Community Center this spring, Mr. Lewen generously offered one of his original pieces from a series entitled “Ghosts” for the center’s upcoming benefit auction, “Sunset On The Mountain: A Celebration of Heritage Arts.” Mr. Lewen felt a piece from “Ghosts” was most appropriate as the series was born of an impromptu art session while filming the 2004 documentary “The Ritchie Boys.” The piece is a charcoal on canvas, of which Mr. Lewen says, “The victims of endless wars and holocausts produced the(se) Ghosts.” Displayed without frame or stretching, per Mr. Lewen’s request, the canvas projects a hidden away feeling, mirroring the clandestine work of artists in Nazi concentration camps. Charcoal was used because it was often the only medium available to artists in the camps, salvaged from the crematoriums.
