Superhero Puppies on Parade!

I am honored to paint a new Superhero for Southeastern Guide Dogs fund raising campaign. And this year it's puppies! My sponsor Susan Jones asked if it could look like one of her pups named Wallace. Wallace's home will most likely be Selby Gardens so I celebrated the gardens in day and night. 

Wallace will be unveiled Monday April 24th at the Best of Sarasota celebration at Selby Botanical Gardens.

Up for a wild time? Don’t miss the October Art Show, “Art from the Mildly Wild Side.” On the walls will be work from Petticoat Painters, Sherri Hill and Evelyn Peters.

A professor at the State College of Manatee-Sarasota, Sherri’s witty art is a whimsical combination of Rene Magritte and Groucho Marx.  With an astonishingly bold palette and compositions that are at once realistic and, phantasmagoric, Evelyn McCorristin Peters depicts natural landscapes and incredible portraits of pets. On the video screen will be mind-blowing work from Ringling College students presented by the head of the Motion Design Department, Professor Ed Cheatham. In the Showcase, there will be Sally Jaret’s collection of vintage jewelry. And on the tables — “Mom’s Home Cooking.”

So come on and get in on the fun! To attend the champagne reception at 6 PM on October 22 and/orreserve a table or a seat for dinner at 7PM , please contact: birdkeyyachtclub@birdkeyyc.com or call Barbara Palma at 941-953-4455 ext 103.
