Maybe Someday - inspired by Paul Klee - selected as donation for charity raffle

I am a member of the Lakeshore Artists Association, a group of professional artists in our area. I am very proud to be the only textile artist (so far) and was very pleased to be asked to donate a piece for our upcoming exhibition. All proceeds from the raffle are donated to NOVA, a very worthy local charity, and 1/3 of the sale of the artwork is also donated to this organization.

  1. Strange, I posted a comment yesterday and it hasn't been registered. I was congratulating you, Helena, are being accepted and flying the flag for textiles but also for being chosen to appear on the poster as well. Hilary

  4. The event was yesterday and it was a great success. My donated piece was greatly admired and it brought my work a lot of visibility. The raffle raised about $3000 i think, final figures not yet available, and it was won by a member of our artist association, so I know she will value it! I made a lot of sales at the show so I was very very pleased!
