Tomorrow’s the due date for your responses. PUH-LEESE fill it out.
If you forgot to do it, here is the link again:
SU FIBER ALUMNI INVITATIONAL EXHIBIT
Jappie King Black’s fiber installation now on display at “Elongating the Thread”
SDA members Barbara Jean Weingart, a silk painter and Jappie King Black, who creates fiber installations, have been selected along with six other textile artists for “Elongating the Thread”, an exhibition of works at Syracuse University XL Gallery, 307-313 S. Clinton St., Syracuse, NY, February 3 – 27, 2010.
The opening reception is February 18th (Thursday) from 5 to 9. At 5:00 PM several exhibiting artists, including Barbara, will participate in a panel discussion about their work.
ART FROM THE HEART FOR HAITI
Four of Judith Plotner’s fiber collages will be included in “ART FROM THE HEART FOR HAITI”
Dates: February 19 – March 28
Opening Reception Saturday, February 20, 5:00-8:00
Location: Mimosa Gallery
70C Beekman Street
Saratoga Springs, NY
Each year Mimosa Gallery organizes a group show to benefit a different charity. The past fundraisers have been for the American Cancer Society and Alzheimer's Association of Northeastern New York.
The 2010 fundraiser will benefit the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. A percentage of the exhibition's proceeds will be donated to this organization.
The Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund is working towards providing immediate relief and long-term support to Haiti's earthquake survivors. This fund was chosen because 100% of the proceeds go to the re-building of Haiti.
