New artists and new work at 253 Collective in Tacoma 

Dear Art Lover,


I am delighted to be one of five new artists in the 253 Collective Art Gallery in Tacoma, Washington. There are 10 of us altogether. We share the responsibility of running the gallery, planning new exhibits, and occasionally dusting things (ok, so we're not quite as good at that!).

We hope you will stop by and see us. Details are below. I will be at the gallery for the opening reception on Thursday, August 18, and also on Sunday, August 21, from noon to 5 p.m. I will contribute 20% of the sales of my work to Nisqually Land Trust.

If you are not sure why you are getting this message: This is going to my regular mailing list in addition to the 253 Collective list. If you do not wish to be on either list, it is very easy to take yourself off the list by following the link at the bottom of this message. Many thanks.
