Shew, do I have lotsa stuff going on!
First, I will talk about the new gallery. As I posted here, I am creating a new gallery at Embrace Pet Insurance in Beachwood, OH. A month is a pretty short time to put a gallery together, but it has happened!
Come join us on Thursday Dec 2 2010 from 4pm – 8pm at the Embrace Pet Insurance offices at 23625 Commerce Park, Beachwood, OH to celebrate the new partnership between BZTAT Studios and Embrace.
There will be light refreshments on hand and lots of pet themed artwork for sale. Original art makes a wonderful gift for pet lovers.
You might even pick up a thing or two about pet insurance from the great folks at Embrace. I am REALLY excited about this partnership, because Embrace is an organization that really values pets and their people.
Leashed pets are welcome. I hope to see you there!
I will also have artwork at the Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild at 338 4th St, NW in Canton, OH (next to my old studio) for Canton’s First Friday this Friday, December 3, 2010. I hope to see you there as well.
And the new cat…Well, Okey has really inspired me. Not only has SHE inspired me, the people who have followed her story and given us encouragement have really moved me. So much, that I am moving forward with a project that I have been contemplating for a long time.
I am developing the “Okey’s Promise: Art for a Cause” project, which you can read about on the new website I have developed for it. The project is to raise awareness about the connections between animal maltreatment, child abuse and domestic violence through public art. I hope that you enjoy the site and will follow along with me on this journey.
Is your holiday season as busy as mine? Keep in mind that you can do some of your holiday shopping here! I have several original paintings available, colorful prints and gift certificates. Although it is too late to complete a custom pet portrait by Christmas, you can still give your loved one a gift certificate for a portrait.
Have a fun and joyful holiday season!
