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
The daffodils are creeping slowly out of the ground. The hawks are courting each other. A clubfoot white-tailed deer is eating the birdseed. Snow is in the forecast but I can smell spring on the wind. And I can't wait to get into the garden this year. I will eat fresh radishes with salt and butter on crispy French bread this year. I will pull fabulous carrots out of the ground and pick snap peas.
