Getting ready for Art for AIDS benefit, Artspace, Hartford, CT.

I'm donating these two paintings for the Art for AIDS benefit to take place at Hartford's Artspace Gallery on Saturday, June 19 at 7pm.
For only $50 guests will enjoy open bar (top shelf wine bar, tequila & Hint mixers), yummy food by Salute Restaurant, a live DJ, dancing, coffee bar, dessert, a raffle, an art show and an art grab where EVERYONE goes home with an original 12 x 12 original canvas.  

Guests will literally pick their canvas choice off the wall to take home; the identity of the artist will remain unknown until the moment of selection.  You might take home a piece of art from a well known, famous artist... The canvases are all wonderful!

Raffle items include: 2 ten class cards for West Hartford Yoga, Costa del Sol gift certificate,  Miya's Sushi certificate, local dance classes, a case of Barefoot wine, and a 3 class card for Fuller movement.

Each of the canvases were created by working artists who understand and appreciate the importance of our mission to strive to ensure quality housing and supportive services for people living with HIV/AIDS in Connecticut and to promote effective HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention education. I'm so thankful to the contributing artists and hope you'll join me at this fabulous event! DONT WAIT TO SEE THE AFTER-PICTURES AND BE SORRY YOU MISSED IT!!!

Looking ahead to Fall

I am playing with new arrangements for the next exhibition of my Suburban Foraging series in Open Air at the  Nave Gallery in Somerville, MA in September 2010. On display, exhibited for the first time, will be my foraging sketchbook drawings executed in 2009 and 2010

The work has been displayed in horizontal rows twice now. This arrangement will be in vertical rows by month, mirroring the passage of the seasons.

The pictures are of my playing with the pages on the floor of my studio in Hartford, CT.
