Next up: The Art of Giving

Owl Flush by Kate Garchinsky

Now that my heron painting has sold for Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research (thank you, Coral and Cadie!), I can start blabbing about The Art of Giving exhibit (November 6, B Square Gallery, Philadelphia). My painting, “Owl Dream,” will be on display alongside a few dozen other original pieces of art to raise funds and awareness for Philabundance. Read more at (no name) Art Group’s website, Facebook, or Philabundance’s site. If you plan to attend the opening, please be sure to let me know! There will be wine…

Also, I’ve added new samples to my Design page, and created a folio specifically for Products I’ve designed and developed. This replaces the “Side Projects” page I originally had in its place. I’ll keep posting about my side projects here on my blog. Tidier and simpler.
