The gallery as a whole has decided that we want to get out and become more involved in the community!
Michele started us off in May by attending Art Uniting People – A Celebration of Creativity and Mental Health, an event put on by the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria’s Mental Health Anti-Stigma HOPE Campaign. She had a great time and made some connections that might lead to an event or two at the gallery later this the year!
Last night, Ali attended the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria’s donor event with a collector and close friend of the gallery. They had a wonderful time visiting with all the dogs and cats that are available for adoption! Pet adoption if something we all support, especially our newest member Asher, Clint’s adopted rescue puppy! He has only been here for a week and we are already making him tired with all the attention we’ve been giving him!
Ali and Meghan, joined by gallery friend Leigh, will be venturing out to the Carlyle House on Fairfax Street tonight for the 5th Annual Bubbles & Bluegrass event hosted by Give Back Alexandria, an initiative of ACT for Alexandria. The event is “a philanthropic, live music, giving back kind of event” to benefit ALIVE! and Higher Achievement. We already know a few collectors who will be in attendance, maybe we’ll see you there too! Check back next week for some pictures!
Look for the four of us (and Asher) out and about on the town and let us know if there is an event you think we should be attending!
