The fundraiser for Richmond Art Gallery this year was an exhibit of self-portraits that were for sale -with 50% of the price going to RAG. The exhibits were impressive for their creativity. One was a box of recipes- well, why not? That is an aspect of one's personality! One was like a large Canadian stamp with a map of the world indicating where the creator had traveled. There were collages and photos and extremely well-done drawings. I wanted to paint something that someone else might like to buy so I painted from a photo- myself sitting in the garden. It did sell- so will be a contribution to the Art Gallery. The closing party was on December 14th- not snowing but a rainy stormy evening. Is it just the time of year- or is there something about fundraisers?
