United Arts of Central Florida
I had applied for a Professional Development Grant through the United Arts of Central Florida to help defray the costs of and make possible a fantastic opening for my solo exhibition of collages in the theme of music, at the Maitland Art Center in September.
I just received notice over the weekend that I have been awarded that Grant! I cannot thank the folks at United Arts of Central Florida enough (especially Mary Patrick for fielding ALL my questions) for their generosity of funds that will make such a HUGE difference for me in putting together this 35-40 piece exhibition. Also, I must thank Richard Colvin, curator for Maitland Art Center, who attended the UA Grant panel meeting in my stead, as I was out of town the day of the review.
All artists can appreciate that the expense of supplies and framing for such a show can be staggering, let alone adding a potential catalogue and entertainment for the opening night (musical entertainment of course!). With this Professional Development Grant I will have the opportunity to exhibit my work at a level I have not had before. The Maitland Art Center is a highly regarded venue with excellent gallery space, and 35-40 Paper Paintings is a lot of artwork!
The Performing Arts of Maitland (for which I play the violin in their Maitland Symphony Orchestra) will be providing some opening night music for the event. I hope that you will mark your calendars!
for me. for therapy. for memory
