Every year I participate in the Holiday Sale at the North River Arts Society. Not only did I study painting here for a long time, I made lots of friends here, and benefitted form various workshops and events. I usually put out small pieces left from my various sales - not this year.
You see, I'm taking a class, and recently we've been thinking about receiving - and giving. So this year I am only including in this sale things I would hang in my own home - and I am including pieces up to 12x12 inches, pieces I have enjoyed, pieces other artists have complimented me on. I feel like this way, I may be 'receiving' your support, but I am giving as well. I feel the commission the NRAS takes from this is the LEAST I can give for all they give me and other South Shore artists.
So in addition, this year, I will donate a portion of the North River Sales to the relief effort in the Philippines. I cannot imagine what those poor people are going through. So! We've got your cocktails, your donuts, your sea gulls, your Maine views - come 'n get it Saturday & Sunday! Great art all around that room! When I dropped off my paintings, I saw THREE other GirlsJustWannaPaint peeps.
Wishing you a huge turnout and lots of sales!!ReplyDelete
