Thank you to artists through the years who have so generously given to Boys & Girls Club of Denver, The Dumb Friend’s League, The Alzheimer’s Association, Sweet T Benefit.
Tomorrow I will publish coverage of the Alzheimer’s Association art gala which happens tonight. Candice Pulliam, art curator of this show has given her notice. After 12 years, and emotions for the issues below, she will put her efforts elsewhere. She has done an excellent job in growing this event. 800 tickets have been sold as of yesterday.
Please click on the link below for a wonderful article on, quite frankly, artists making a living with their art.
This is an artist’s age old dilemma: should I opt for what the charity deems ‘exposure’ or do I maintain my artistic integrity and gallery prices. The article is spot on. As the person who has quite often asked for art donations rather meekly I might add, in the future, I will choose my charities with publicity associated with the event in mind as well as perks for the artists who donate to the cause.
