    Looking great! I am very excited to participate with RISE- what an excellent opportunity to do good!

  2. Sofia Says:

    I am amazed at the list of participating artist that are coming to RISE, “to” the occasion. We notice how art becomes an extension of the artists hands (the inner creative), but to RISE and participate in a gathering to extend for a noble, larger communal cause, really speaks the language of soul. Devotion. I RISE for all who are putting this event together and salute all the artists for RISING to the evolution of a noble soul.

    A site of interest:

    What a wonderful idea, and a really well-planned exhibit and fundraiser. Good work, EDGE folks!!

  4. Terra Says:

    As an artist, it is not often you find such a group of peers that are as dedicated and compassionate as those coming together for the RISE exhibition and fundraiser. I am honored to be counted among them and have a great feeling about the energy driving this show and the many positive benefits that will come of it for all involved, especially the kids touched by the Rise’N Shine charity efforts.

  5. I am so pleased that this art gathering is not just another “cocktail party” it has a noble cause.I wish the best to every artist participating in this communal art show and auction, especially to my friend Terra.

      Rick, it was wonderful to meet you on Saturday. I can tell by your being (without having to look at your dedication to Rise ‘n’ Shine) that you are a generous, giving person. Thank you for your wonderful acknowledgement and welcome to me as one of the artists. It was wonderful to have you there and be present to the geniune gratitude you have for the artists in the exhibition. Makes it well worth the effort I have put into preparing for the show and helping with the prep work. 🙂
