Hello friends! Many of you might have gotten an email from me regarding The SCAR Project Friends & Family Night. If you did not, I will post the info here too. Will be a great event and I do hope you can come. Tickets are limited! See below..

Also, since the exhibit is getting close, it is getting press. And much of it is about me, since I am the Cincinnati girl. :)

Anyway, here are the links to 2 stories: article online (and should be in print version Thursday, Sep 8):

Express Cincinnati article online (and maybe in print version?):

Ok, and on to the Friends and Family Night info:

It’s almost here folks! 30 more days until The SCAR Project exhibit is in Cincy.

I would like to invite you all to a very special private Friends & Family Night of Fri Sep 30. That gallery closes at 5:00 that night so that we can have a cocktail celebration with YOU – our friends & family! I am beyond excited about this, and really hope you can join me. You are the people who have been with me through everything, so I wouldn’t want to share this night with anyone but you all.

The space is limited and will definitely sell out, so PLEASE reserve/purchase your tix as soon as possible. You are the first to know about this event, so get your ticket before we spread the word…

(My suggestion is to purchase your tix even if you are not sure if you can make it. We can always refund your money, but when the tix are gone, you are outta luck!)

There will be lots of other stuff going on all that weekend, like an opening night gala on Thurs, gallery walk-through tours with the photographer, and regular general admission times, so if Fri doesn’t work out for you, not to worry — there will surely be something for you! Info about the weekend festivities is here:
