A Blooming Artist CONTINUED......

As promised here are the pictures of how my artwork turned out. These are the walls at The Durham Rescue Mission that needed "joyful color". The above pictures are the group that helped install all the artwork. Elizabeth is trying to take credit for the one she is with- HA HA!
They turned out great and thanks to everyone who helped make this gift a success!

A Blooming Artist

Being in charge or organizing ASID meetings, I feel as if we should do a charity around the holidays. So.....this year we had the opportunity to help out The Durham Rescue Mission. They desperately needed artwork in the halls in their apartments for their residents. It is so gloomy and depressing down the halls we thought some artwork would help cheer things up. We had a lesson from Susan Hecht a wonderful local artist in Apex. She was so kind to let us use her studio and to donate the materials. Check out her website at www.susanbhecht.com.
You will see the finished product in the next blog. I know you can't wait to see!!!

ASID Christmas Party

ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) & IIDA (International Interior Design Association) held a joint social event bringing the design community together to celebrate the holidays. The event was held at the beautiful Nasher Museum of Art on the Duke University Campus. As you can see from the above photo the museum had the Picasso exhibit and an Andy Warhol Polaroid exhibit. It was an interesting exhibit and what a treat to see original Picasso pieces.
