HOLIDAY TREASURES: Art for a good cause

Slice of Light. Oil on Linen 11 x 14

Just back from hanging  "Holiday Treasures: Art for a good cause" at Mane on Madison ("MOM") Salon in Wyckoff, New Jersey. Great to see the fruits of my labor displayed in such a beautiful setting all decked out for the holidays. (Showcase runs through January 3, 2010)

A stylish, inviting and lovingly restored 3-story home turned full service salon, MOM is tucked-away on a quiet side street near town center. It's an ideal venue to showcase 16 of my recent paintings, including: Slice of Light," "In Full Bloom," "Coming up Roses," to name a few.

This year's exhibition is also a fundraiser for Table to Table, the organization that collects prepared and perishable excess food and delivers it to organizations that feed the hungry in Bergen, Passaic, Essex and Hudson counties in New Jersey. A portion of proceeds from all paintings sold will be donated to this fine community-based food rescue program.

Should you be in the area, do stop in. Coffee is always brewing, browsing is encouraged and the staff is amazingly talented and welcoming. And in the spirit of the giving season, perhaps you could find it in your heart to make a small donation to Table to Table to help feed our area's hungry.
