Ashland Artisan's Gallery Exhibit

Three of my prints will be in a gallery show sponsored by the Ashland Artisan's Gallery. They will be hung February 11 though April 30 at Royce Real Estate at 145 E. Main Street in Ashland. Prints are great for collectors of Pressed Flower and Nature Art as the beautiful color of the flowers are retained and the fresh look is captured. Their calming influence can also be a real benefit to patrons of holistic professionals, as well as a beautiful addition to their decor.

Postcards From The Edge benefit for Visual AIDS

I just received a letter from the Visual AIDS Board of Directors telling me that my submission to the 11th annual Postcards From The Edge benefit for Visual AIDS, held at Metro Pictures in New York, NY, was purchased! The artwork they invited artists to donate was in the size and form of a postcard, which they sold at the event for 75.00. My piece was called "Courage (pictured at right)", and is now in the possession of a collector in New York. I'm so pleased to have been able to contribute to this worthy cause, and grateful that this collector valued my work, as well as the cause, so highly.

The benefit did very well overall. Within 48 hours, this year's event raised an extraordinary $75,000 with the exhibition of 1,656 works and the attendance of thousands of guests. My congratulations to Visual AIDS for their brilliant idea and its success in raising funds for their efforts.
