Thanksgiving is on our doorstep and we can smell the stuffing from here! We want to embrace the spirit and share our thanks and appreciation with everyone who’s supported us this year.
We’ve been thrilled to receive loads of wonderful feedback, sell many prints and participate in some very special events over the past few weeks. November especially has been quite a month for us.
First, SLPS founder Casey Kelbaugh invited us to help sponsor the annual Slideluck Fundraiser. It was a super hip event with many collectors, gallery owners, artists and just all around cool people. Our artists Julian Wolkenstein, James Knight-Smith, Michael Schlegel, Michael Hall, Geoffrey H. Short and Joe Baran donated prints. All our prints sold well and the proceeds went to support SLPS and the Slideluck Youth Initiative. Thank you to Casey, producer Carly Planker and our participating artists.
Next, our director Zack Seckler was invited to speak on the BIG TALK panel, a sold out symposium celebrating the launch of the esteemed American Photography 27 and American Illustration 30 competitions. Thank you to Persia Tatar and Richard Kelly plus fellow panelists Jeff Newelt and Alex Johnson.
Then, just last week, we were invited to support the wonderful charity Pencils of Promise. It was a glamorous, star-studded event that included celeb guests Justin Bieber, Shaq, Usher and many more. Joe Baran donated one of his “Visitors” prints which was bid on more times then we could count and helped contribute to raising more then a million bucks in one night for PoP! Thank you to Lindsey Wilner, Susie Typher and Kate Shulte for including us as a small part of a very big evening.
Lastly, thank you to everyone who has written about us, written to us, purchased our prints and helped spread the word about the birth of our very new enterprise.
We’ve got lots of wonderful new artwork to introduce you to in the coming weeks and months so stay tuned. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
