November is C2C Gallery’s Fundraising month for a local non-profit.
This year we are focusing on Bluebird Cancer Retreats.
Cancer is such an ugly disease. It touches most of our families in one manner or another. My father and my mother’s sister died from different forms of cancer. My husband is a cancer survivor. Every day is a gift and the big “C” is always at the back of our minds wondering when it will raise its head again. We call it the Dragon and we want it to stay asleep. Listen to individuals who have experienced Bluebird:
Over the last several months, I have been throwing extra bowls on the potter’s wheel for this event. Several of our artists are adding to our collection for Friday night’s event. On Friday evening, beginning at 6pm, you can stop in to choose your handmade ceramic bowl, make a suggested $35 donation, and enjoy locally created soup from “Meals for a Week”, Desserts by Design, and Joe’s Wooden Nickel.
Our Green Daffodil Gals who hand-pour soy candles for us designed a new candle that will be an ongoing fundraising item for sale in the gallery. On Friday, we will be donating a candle for each “Light of Hope” candle sold. After this weekend, we will continue to sell these candles with a portion of the proceeds donated to Bluebird Cancer Retreats.
We have lots of other things happening in the gallery on Friday evening. More reasons to stop in – Michael Drost will be performing his jazz guitar. We always love hosting this talented musician. Ken Foster, former ceramics professor at Muskegon Community College, is our November featured artist. Ken is currently re-purposing found objects to create new forms of artwork. This show is unique to any of our previous exhibits.
