SOLD! - Art Auction Raises $30k for State Hospital

12x9" pastel, "Variations No. 2"

I donated the above pastel, Variations No. 2, to the ASH Insights Art Show & Sale, benefiting the Austin State Hospital. I was thrilled to learn that it was purchased by state employee and show organizer, Donna Brown. And, over $30,000 was raised to benefit the hospital through this benefit!

The following is an announcement from their program. To see it in its entirety online, click here:

Through ticket sales, the purchase of professional and patient art, and generous sponsors, over $30,000 was raised to enrich the lives of children and adults receiving treatment at the Austin State Hospital.

One of the most successful activities at the recent event was the community painting. Guests had the opportunity to contribute their artistic talents on a painting which was auctioned off at the end of event. View additional photos of event, including the live community paintings. Without the support of individuals, companies, and foundations, the Volunteer Services Council would not be able to provide funding for special programs and services.

Thanks again for partnering to find solutions towards wellness.

Special thanks to the oustanding artists who believed in our mission:
