I am fortunate to be represented by Hudson Fine Art and Framing in Hudson, Ohio. Kathy Johnson, the owner, is a really nice person. She has been combining her business of art with the business of helping others ever since she took ownership. Earlier in the year, she hosted "It's Raining Cats and Dogs" to benefit The Humane Society of Greater Akron. "In The Pink" opens this Friday and will benefit The Gathering Place's annual retreat for women with breast cancer. This show features the needlework of Hudson's Pillow Group, a group of nine women who have formed a coalition of sorts, to share and promote the varied needlework art of its members: Beth Angelotta, Katie Coulton, Anne Cutchin, Brigitte Gottfried, Angela Strach-Gotthardt, Heinke Klaassen, Peg Mayor, Kathy Schiciano and Barb Warner. In addition to my work, the exhibit also features the work of fabric artist Connie Bloom, the collage and haiku work of Darcy Haynes and the work of fellow painter Tricia Kaman. There is a $10 entry fee for a fabulous opening this Friday from 5:30-8:30 pm at Hudson Fine Art & Framing located at 9 Aurora Street in Hudson. Support those with breast cancer. Support the arts. Support Hudson Fine Art & Framing. They are good guys. Or should I say gals?
