Off the Wall a huge success!!!

Well, it's all over now, and I can tell you....
It was great! Folks turned out in record numbers, and enthusiastic buyers couldn't wait to be allowed upstairs to the gallery. Within the first 45 minutes, more than half of the 337 images were already sold. Everyone seemed to have a great time, and there were huge smiles as folks walked out with many little gems, and the best part is that the Civic Center raised close to $10,000 for operating funds! I have to fire my buyer though (husband Steve) as he was unable to grab ANY of the paintings I hoped to purchase - they were already gone by the time he reached them!!! But it was all good.
Three of the images in this photo are mine ( I can own them now that the event is over!) I was sort of sad to see the painting of the little children on the beach go, as I had so much fun with that one. We're all tired, but happy, and thankful for the generosity of so many artists who made the event a huge success, and for many volunteers who joined in the fray to make it all happen!

Off the Wall tomorrow!

Our long-awaited Off the Wall fundraiser is tomorrow night, Oct. 1, from 5:30-9pm. this event raises money for the Jaffrey Civic Center, a non profit organization that benefits the Jaffrey community in many ways. We're excited and look forward to a wild and crazy evening, with art being sold right "off the wall" all for the incredible price of only $60 each. We have approximtaly 300 images, and many different media, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, oil pastel, colored pencil, fiber, mixed media, encaustic, collage, and fine art photography. Over 120 artists in the region have generously donated works - without their enthusiastic support, we could not hold this event. It's a wonderful opportunity to pick up some fabulous little gems for an amazing price. And thanks to local frame shop owners, Roy and Nancy Stone, we will even have a limited number of frames for purchase at a discount that evening. In addition, we will have a "buy 3, get 1 free" incentive, so don't miss this event if you are local enough to get here!
Jaffrey Civic Center, 40 Main St., Jaffrey, NH Gonna be great!!
