art inside me

November 11, 2013


Last month, I wrote a story about a project called the Art Inside Cancer and I shared that I took photographs of the event. If you are around town this month and see a magazine called Reno Tahoe Tonight, be sure to pick it up, there is an article about the event on page 12 and Oliver, the editor of the paper was kind enough to include my photography with the piece.

If you are not local but would still like to check out the article here is the link to the online version:

the art inside me

In addition, the Art Inside Me Project is moving forward this week with a special project taking place at a local elementary school. Sharon DeMattia, the founder of Art Inside Me, will be creating pieces with 400 elementary school students. Called Art Inside Education, Sharon is currently purchasing canvases, mats, markers, mounting tape, backing tape, looking for local printers to help print the projects once they are photographed. Because she is working with the school district funds are not available to purchase these items, so she is looking outside to the greater community for assistance in purchasing these items.

Please take a look at her project and consider a small donation to get this off the ground. Our community needs this so desparately. Art Inside Education

Have a great Monday everyone.
