CNIB Eye Appeal

Thursday night was the Artists' Reception for the CNIB Eye Appeal, a fabulous fund raiser to aid those with impaired vision through to those who are blind. As visual artists our craft relies on sight and much of what brings us joy in life is visual. Most likely for that reason, more than 200 artists of Victoria BC generously donated works of art, including paintings, sculptures, fiber art, ceramics, and photography. Here I am with my donated piece, Curb Appeal - Paris France.

The festivities are just getting started, in the Crystal Gardens, an historic building which was once a swimming pool at the turn of the century and is now a part of the Victoria Conference Center. It's a beautiful skylight lit venue for an art exhibition.
