I just found out that my piece titled "When one door closes..." was chosen as the gift for the honored guests of the RAIN When One Door Closes" art exhibit /auction hosted at Myers Park Baptist Church. Around 120 people came to view the film "For The Bible Tells Me So" and participate in the silent auction. They raised over $2700 for the Regional AIDS Interfaith Network (RAIN)!
My friend Charley wrote, "the Welcoming and Affirming Fellowship chose to honor Fran and George Kerr for their decades of advocacy for LGBT justice issues by dedicating the evening to them AND presenting them with your beautiful piece. The WAF chose your piece because it spoke so poignantly to their work of opening doors. So we collected donations from members and presented ever $150 to RAIN for the piece with more to come in."
I am so honored!!!
