Women & Wardrobe: Art Opening, Benefit & Fashion Show

Former Liberal Boomer co-organizer, artist in several media, and friend, Janet Riehl, has created over 2000 "doodles" on her smart phone in the last 2 years.  Contrary to what I was expecting given the medium, I think many of them are amazing, some Picassoesque, and all very creative.  She has selected 30 of them, had them elegantly framed, and is offering them for display and sale as a benefit for the Portfolio Gallery & Education Center.

The PGEC exhibits works by some of the best local, regional and national African American artists and offers school enrichment programs, after school classes, and other programs for children and adults.  $50 of the $150 sale price covers materials, and $100 goes straight to the Center.

Let's meet for the opening August 2.  Refreshments served.   And the Fontbonne Dept. of Fashion Merchandising has organized a fashion show for the evening.  The collection is also available for viewing through September 26 by appointment.  [masked]).

Here are links to see the works online and a brief description of the collection and Janet's international background.

(Janet will be on Fox TV, channel 2 live on 7/29 sometime between 9 and 10 am.)

    Thanks to all of you who came by. Janet and Robert (head of the PGED) were both very appreciative of people’s interest and financial support. Interesting coincidence that a couple of you had your eyes on the same piece that I had purchased. Janet is looking into the possibility of more prints being made. And it was fun to have a chance to talk to many of you. Again, thanks — I think it was a fun evening. Now, if only I could make my cell phone create like Janet’s! :-)

    I am so sorry I didn't check my email. My cat had a bacterial infection in her ears. She was a rescue, so the first thing I did with her besides a long trip home in a cardboard carrier was to have to trick her into letting me put drops in her ears twice a day. The only fun part was Google took me to a website in England when I asked how to give cats ear drops. Then she got a yeast infection in her ears from the lack of bacteria, and I got to put drops in, but only once a day and one ear. The second ear was really hard. Anyhoo. The good news is she did not have fleas. She was scratching at her own ears enough to make her own ears bleed. The vet says I don't have to give her flea preventative if she is going to be inside all the time.

    Sorry to write so much about my cat. She is very sweet now.

    Hope the event was as fabulous as it sounded. Sorry I wimped out without checking first about buying something.

    I thought I would have enough money to buy something, but my cat had three vet trips this month. Thanks for creating the event for us, Eliot.

      Thanks for your good intentions, Mary, and I'm sorry to hear about your cat. I hope he/she is doing better. You are of course welcome to just view the exhibit and fashion show. Not everyone will be purchasing!
