What could be better than investing in art and receiving a tax deduction in the bargain? Icing on the cake! Right now my sculpture is at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum. Founded in 1978, the museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to educating the community about the history and culture of Cheyenne Frontier Days from the event’s earliest inspiration to its present celebration.
On April 20th will be a fantastic show featuring a fantastic book just being released titled “Horse Sanctuary” a book by journalist Allison Milionis profiling thirteen sanctuaries that rescue and care for abandoned or mistreated equines, and in some cases, rehabilitate them for adoption or new careers. There is a forward in the book written by Temple Grandin and the beautiful photography is by Karen Tweedy-Homes who will be at the show with me to sign the book and offer her framed and unframed photography to the lucky people who can come to the gallery on this day! Mark and I will be there – of course, and all of my sculpture will be there available to you for the opportunity to, not only invest in some beautiful artwork and receive tax benefits, but help an organization that does such wonderful work on behalf of abused and neglected equines. A portion of both my art and Karen’s will be donated to Equine Voices.
