I probably haven't posted much recently about the SOBs with whom I associate. They are aka the Sisters of the Brush, and we have critiqued and learned and painted and shown artwork together for quite a few years (don't make me go back right now to figure out the first time we met - but I'll guess well over 10 years). This year we'd arranged to have our artwork featured at the Fieldstone Winery for the month of December. Several of us have had solo shows there, and we've had a group display previously. Because it's the holiday season, we've gotten ourselves into a mood for a party more than an opening. We're bringing our most affordable art (sometimes some older things, sometimes reproductions, often smaller items) so that our friends and followers can find something they like to take home. We also pledged that 50% of our artwork sales from the party and the month-long display will be donated to support the Mary McCarthy Anderson Art Scholarship fund. We hope we can pull together a substantial amount in order to sponsor more students in their pursuit of artistic expression.
Mostly, we hope we will see you there! You can come by to see and buy the artwork any time through the month of December, but on Thursday the 11th, you'll find us there, and a rack of notecards, and a rack of REALLY affordable matted/unframed originals and reproductions. You'll also find wine tastings (Fieldstone wines, of course), and good refreshments. So, does that motivate you to find time between 6 and 9 that evening? I sure hope so. And of course, I also hope that Old Man Winter cooperates. Enough of the bad weather just when you plan something fun!
