Small Works for a Big Cause: Artists Unite To Help Haiti
This Sunday, Jan 31., go to Brassworks Gallery (105 Grove, Montclair) from 2-5 p.m. and purchase any one of over 100 pieces of original art priced at $50! Many local artists and students have donated their work -- this is your chance to own a small piece of art from an artist you admire and help Haiti. All proceeds will go to the relief effort of your choice: Doctors Without Borders, The Red Cross or Partners in Health. Live music, small bites and beverages; checks only (no cash or credit cards).
Organized by two of my studio mates, this fund-raiser for Haiti had to turn away artists' donations because there was not enough room in the gallery. Good grief!
I am donating to two other fund raisers I support and then, I am done for the year.
Joanne Mattera writes about this very thing on her blog. Once you get there, follow the link under Art Auctions Officially Over and read what she has to say.
Makes absolute sense and is a topic that comes up routinely on some of the fiber lists. It is a pervasive problem for artists everywhere.
I'm feeling better, thanks to gallons of chicken soup and ginger tea. I'd been slicing ginger into my tea but my friend Sujatha said it would work better if I boiled the ginger in the water before I added the tea.
What a difference! About 40 years ago my neighbor Rajni taught me to make masala tea by boiling ginger, cinnamon sticks, cardomom, tea, and milk together. Over the years I started taking shortcuts - but today I went back to the real way and I am feeling much better. Jessica said her acupuncturist advised her to do the same when she had a cold and it worked!
If you are still awake, I have to share this post from the NY Times' Diner's Journal on-line with you. As a person who freely admits I am high-maintenance in restaurants, it absolutely made my day. Happy
