I'd like to announce a very exciting art event that will benefit the Schoharie Valley, New York victims of Hurricane Irene. The Lasting Impressions Internet Charity Art Sale was created by artist Jonathan Stasko, a resident of Schoharie Valley who was moved to help his hurting community through his art. The effects of Irene were disastrous. In Jon's town alone, an estimated 85%–90% of all homes experienced major damage or were destroyed. Please take a few minutes to watch the video below for just a glimpse of Irene's devastating impact on this area.
The Lasting Impressions Art Sale begins November 19, 2011, and will feature work by Daniel Keys, Taaron Parsons, Ryan Mellody, Andrea Orr, Paul DeLuna, Jonathan Stasko, myself and others. The proceeds will go to a local charity that is assisting property owner victims. Please consider purchasing artwork next month to a make a difference in Schoharie Valley.
The Lasting Impressions official website is here. It is still under construction, but you can add your e-mail address to the mailing list to receive the latest news about the sale. Also, check this blog periodically for more details about the event.
