The lovely hearts exhibition


I've told you in my last post, that I was creating pieces for Valentine last week. Well actually I'm excited to tell you that I've created them for the "Lovely hearts charity exhibition" of artstreamstudios. Susan the owner of www.artstream.com and of http://artesprit.blogspot.com/ is looking for artists from around the globe to submit their art work about the theme LOVE, in all it's forms, for presentation in the gallery of artstream studios in February 2007. 50% of the retail price of each artwork sold will support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The other 50% goes directly back to the artists.

I've chosen the altered Love CD above as well as the two following collages as my submisson:


In the photo below you can see the other side of the Altered Love CD. The Altered Star CD is not part of the pieces for the exhibition:



The exhibiton in the Gallery of "Valentines Around The World" opens with a presentation complete with Cocktails and Chocolate on February 10th.Artwork will also be available in the Online Shop from February 10th through February 28th. Click here for more information:

I've first read about Susan's charity exhibition on my pink friend Sandy's lovely art blog over at www.arttealife.blogspot.com .

Hi Carol,
What wonderful artwork! I like them all and think they will be very successful in raising money for such a good cause. My mom died from breast cancer and my aunt is battling it now so your contributions feel personal to me. I appreciate everyone's efforts towards finding a cure.

Very beautiful, as always, Carol. May you be blessed you for your generosity!

Kathleen Marie said...

This is fantastic news for the artsy...which I am not...just a little but the news is worth sharing, especially for the breast cancer fundraising part of it all. I have visited only once before that I can recall. I love your art work and your site is so pretty.

Happy I stopped by!

Da ich beruflich auch mit Dekoration verbunden bin werde ich durch Deine Ideen inspiriert und zugleich bestätigt. Es ist ein Freude so eine Liebe zum schönen Wohnen zu sehen. Viele liebe Grüsse und weiter so! maria
