With the glass ceiling unbroken and the bottom fallen out in the days after the election, studio mates Traci Talasco, Megan Piontkowski, and I put together a little show of election-themed artwork as a benefit for the ACLU. I was so heartened by the generous outpouring of support, both to pull off the event at such short notice and also to make it a successful benefit. Overall we sold just over $4,000 worth of artwork, which was matched dollar for dollar. Thanks to all who donated work, bid, baked cookies, watched the door, painted, patched and otherwise contributed to the effort!
