What is SWAN Day, you ask?

It stands for Support Women Artists Now, and is held on the last Saturday of March, Women's History Month. It is a day to celebrate women artists, reflect on their contributions to society and the artworld, and support them and their efforts. Isabel Allende is a fan and promoter of this holiday, now in its 4th annual celebration, and that's good enough for me!

Come buy some affordable art and show that you support women artists--especially your favorite, me! I'll be featuring my abstract paintings about location and travel, as well as some of the gay bullying series. The afternoon includes musical and theatrical performances, as well as a reception.

Thanks in advance for supporting me and other women artists--by the way, this is the first time I've shown my art in a museum so I'm thrilled for this debut! I hope to see you there!
