The Everson Museum's '60/60'

"The Dance" 11" x 14" Done as a continuation of the river series begun with the painting "Hope" This painting was created, donated and sold during the 60/60 event at the Everson. Museum

This past Friday, I took part in the '60/60' event at the Everson Museum in Syracuse. It was a great time and a wonderful opportunity to raise funds for upstate New York Art!

60 Artists were chosen and we each had 60 minutes to complete an artwork to be raffled, while patrons of the arts strolled through the museum grounds and offered encouragement, comments and generally chatted, watched and enjoyed the refreshments. Arriving an hour ahead of time to get set up and spend time getting to know the other artists added to the fun. I met such interesting people that evening!

The weather was perfect, the people were friendly and a wonderful museum got a little financial boost in these difficult economic times.
