Raise Your Voice




There is so much happening that I want to tell you about.  I'm in a new exhibit, called Raise Your Voice, it's a powerful collection of art, and I'm proud to be a part of it.  The social justice group exhibit is at a new gallery in Lansing called, Casa de Rosado, owned by artist and writer, Theresa Rosado.   The show features, paintings, photography, sculpture and graphic design.  The exhibit runs through May.  Like Casa Di Rosado's Facebook page for details and updates on upcoming events.. 

Want to meet the artists?  Attend the Closing Reception on May 6th and hear the fabulous music of Drew Howard.  I'll have some prints of the Lansing March for Women for Sale.

Casa de Rosado is my new favorite gallery in town.  Watch out for this local gem.
