Palletteers Participate in 100% for Haiti Benefit Art Show
The opening reception for the 100% for Haiti Benefit Art Show took place Friday night. The walls of Mike Walsh's gallery were hung with more than 100 pieces of great art that had been donated for the show. The idea behind the show, which began its planning 100 days prior to the opening, had been 100 artists donating their artwork so that 100% of the profits from the sales could go to two Haitian charities.
I was so proud to see that 23 artists who've painted with the Palletteers including my daughter and Elizabeth's, both Jennifer's :^),contributed pieces of art to the show. The paintings, photos, and jewelry were not only wonderful peices of art but they were also very reasonably priced.
The show runs for the rest of the week. the Palletteers have certainly given their support so we're hoping now that the community does too, and that every piece of artwork sells. If you can't get to the show and would like to purchase a piece of art that's for sale, go to the show's sale site http://www.100percent4haiti.org/sales-gallery/ to see the cost and then call 340-773-2022 to give Mandy your payment info.
