Thank you Joe, John, Patrick and Erika!
Erika, will happily oblige with those photos tomorrow!
I am really stoked now...the Humane Society of El Paso's Director, and I just had a meeting about my exhibiting there, at their wonderful No Kill facility, for the Month of July!!!!!!! I will need to come up with a way to display my framed work, as their "Welcome, reception area" doesn't have the wall space for a proper exhibit, and don't want to use THAT many easels!
I will partner with them as well, with the same % of proceeds going to their efforts of adopting homeless animals, of sales during the exhibit.
I have also offered to donate a small portrait a month, for the adopter of their longest resident animal(whichever animal qualifies that particular month), and to give a 10% discount on portrait pricing for any adopter of any animal starting with the opening of the exhibit, and continuing the duration of the exhibit.
I will meet with the Director again mid-June, to work out all the details. I need to formulate a press release describing my theme- something like..Barb's Art Helping Animals!
I'm hoping to do this with every rescue group in the area, that would have a display location(excluding the portrait a month, which I will rotate semi-annually, amongst the Rescue groups wanting to participate).....any thoughts, ideas, suggestions would be very welcomed on display options, and HOW to write a press release?!
