SOLD at the PINK Benefit!

The PINK show, a fundraiser for breast cancer, was hosted by Soho Myriad in Atlanta, Georgia. My piece (below: 2nd from top, 5th from the right) was exhibited for the auction... and... it sold!

Details from the press release:

"Soho Myriad owners Roger Caplan and Janie Stanfield are thinking pink once again. After successfully teaming up with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Greater Atlanta Affiliate to host the first “Pink Show” at their Westside gallery space last summer, the gallery is ready to repeat the event’s achievement this fall. The “Pink Show” brings together art, charity and everyone’s favorite color for a feel-good cool-weather bash.

It’s an art sale, silent auction, and cocktail party benefiting the Susan G. Komen foundation at Soho Myriad’s Westside location. The evening will feature pink-themed works of art accompanied by a silent art auction and plenty of pink cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Entrance donation as well as a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the art and all the funds raised through the silent auction will be donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation."

These are my "experiments":

It's Spring!





New colours of life are sprouting up everywhere now. Here are some fresh photos of: reflected-red graffiti art, bright-greens up in the trees, wet-browns after a storm, and... the gorgeous-whiteness I've waited a whole year to see again... cherry blossoms in High Park.
