We had a great time at Art with Heart yesterday! We weren't sure what the attendance might be given the new location, but it was very good... We were able to sell, sell, sell and talk, talk, talk. Plus, and this is very important, we raised money to support The Children's Village at Christian City.
Given the fact that we put this show together in under a month it was especially sweet... lots of giving people, great artists, wonderful support from the media and all of our friends and supporters. Special thanks to the Harvest Community Center for their support --- they donated the use of their building (the original Fayetteville theater from way back when). They cleaned up after us, too!
Andrea Boswell, potter extraordinaire, decided the night before the show to put together some pottery packages. She donated the packages to be sold to benefit The Children's Village. 100% of the money from their sale went into the bowl for the Village. Artists are such generous people, aren't they? A large number of artists at the show donated a portion of their sales to the cause, too.
We're going to make this an annual event, expect next year to be even bigger and better (we'll have more than a month to work on it!).
I'm working on a slide show of the art, will pop it on the blog later. I'm kind of in 'decompress' mode at the moment, always need a day after a show just to chill.
We're already working on two more shows so subscribe, follow, watch us!
