So, New City Arts Initiative held a show on the theme ‘home’ for the benefit of The Haven for November First Fridays. (New City Arts Initiative is so freaking cool, people.) The show was held at the WVTF gallery on Water Street and included artists like Patrick Costello, Maureen Lovett, Jesse Wells, Mike Ryan, Lisa Ryan, Ashley Walton, and Maggie Stein. I was lucky to have three pieces in the show, too! The show served as a preview for The Haven’s annual art auction fundraiser – There’s No Place Like Home. We had a great evening last week with over 140 pieces of art and homemade craft, fabulous food, and lots of good juju. These three new pieces were successfully auctioned to the benefit of The Haven:
Notes & Tidbits
On Saturday, I ate my fill of beautiful, crunchy, spicy radishes from the garden. I ate them plain. I ate them with the greens still on 'em. I ate them trimmed, in slices, and in chunks. I ate red ones, pink ones, purple ones and periwinkle ones. I ate them with fresh butter and a little sea salt. I ate them with creamy peanut butter. I ate them on a cracker and on bread. Perfection. So grateful to have gorgeous raised beds growing green things.
