Spring 2017

March 2017 - I was able to donate a Lithograph Print I completed of activist Peter Staley that is/will be a part of the "GMHC Spring Gala Luxury Auction', which is online now and culminates at the exciting event this Thursday at Highline Stages, 441 West 14th, this Thursday, March 23rd at 6:30PM. There are other works of art in the Auction, including a Tom Otterness sculpture and a Shepard Fairey print, all benefitting GMHC's programs and services. Peter will be honored for his strident activism at the event, as well as his brother, Jes Staley (the Barclay's CEO), along with special guest Bill Clinton (!). If you're able to come to the special dinner at 6:30, or to the Dance after-party at 10pm, it would be great to see you at either event. To find out more info or to place an early bid on the print, click on the image to be linked to the GMHC Gala site. Hope to see you there!
