Shoreline Arts Trail Open Studio's group supports a local charity, partnering with them to increase awareness for their cause and raise money to support their organization. Last year we raised funds for Roses for Autism which is both a local business and a wonderful group that employs autistic adults with meaningful work.
During our Open Studios on Nov. 19 & 20 this year, we will be supporting the Community Dining Room of the Shoreline. In their own words:
"The Community Dinging Room is committed to serving the community by feeding the hungry and helping with other basic human needs. We strive to promote public awareness of the impact of hunger and isolation in our society. We are dedicated to helping our guests with their practical needs through referrals and fellowship".
These sweet little owls will be available as "thank you" gifts to patrons at my Open Studio at the Guilford Art Center on the weekend of Nov. 19 & 20. For a suggested donation of $10 or more to the Community Dining Room, 20 (or more if I have time!) lucky donors will receive a small stuffed owl - because anyone who gives a "hoot" about hunger should be rewarded...
