The opening of the Small Works for Haiti Show last night in the Town of Chevy Chase, was a huge success. Thirty five works sold at the opening raising $3500 for Partners in Health. It was a wonderful event as many artists from in and out of the town participated. I was particularly proud of the students that contributed work including my own B-CC high school students as well as students of Lauren Cook and Laurie Rader. The show will be open this afternoon from 2-6pm and Sunday from 2-4. There are lots of small works left to be purchased so please go see the show!
*Partners in Health is doing great work in Haiti and is in there for the long term. To see more images from the exhibition click here.
These images are of the four panels that make up the Town Dogs Mural. Each panel is 20 x 24 inches and is done in oil. I started this project last fall, asking people in my town of Chevy Chase, Maryland, to volunteer their canine family members to model for me. I had a great response and spent most of the autumn photographing all kinds of dogs, from standard poodles to miniature schnauzers. I worked on the panels over the winter, finishing them in April. They will hang in the Chevy Chase town office until the end of May.
Giclee prints of these paintings are available. They are the same size as the originals, printed on high-quality canvas, and stretched on museum-grade stretcher bars. The price of a giclee of one panel is $350. If you would like to order one, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
