Art-A-Thon 2013

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, January 12, 6pm – 10pm

Silent Auction and Exhibition lasts from Jan. 12 – Feb. 2, 2013

This January for the second time, I have signed on to take part of a 24-Hour Art-A-Thon. I will spend 24 hours in my studio along with 20+ artists dedicated to creating art for the entire 24 hours. Yes, I know this sounds crazy, but this is all for a good cause!  ArtHatch (a non-profit organization) supporting free art education for local teens, will be hosting this event. At the end of the 24 hours, every piece of art I have created during the event will be auctioned off, all pieces starting at $25 (50% of the proceeds will go to ArtHatch).  But before I can even take part in this, I need to gather donations and pledges. I am asking you, dear friends, to help me reach my goal of $200.  You can make your tax-deductible donations online through If you donate before January 1, 2013,  you will receive a tax-deductible receipt for the 2012 fiscal year. Please don’t forget to mention my name when pledging online.

AND as a special gift, I will be giving away a free 10 x 10 inch print of one of my original paintings to each donor!!

I’m really looking forward to this, I plan on creating many paintings! I will keep you updated if I have reached my goal. Wish me luck!! The 24 hour marathon will be held on January 11 @ 6pm through January 12 @ 6pm, ending with a BIG Reception and silent auction of all of the work completed during the 24 hours.  Please help me celebrate a long end to 24 hours of painting and creativity by joing me at the Opening Reception on January 12 from 6-10pm at Distinction Gallery. Cheers!

DONATE NOW! Help me reach my goal of $200. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated!
