I am so thrilled to be able to tell you that we have over 75 hearts so far!!! The word has gone far and wide with several different countries being represented by gorgeous artwork. They've been submitted by over 45 different artists. We have works by children and families, and we may have a piece of sculpture in the mix as well! Please get those hearts to me by the end of today, Friday, January 29th! Please send it to ArtHearts (at) gmail (dot) com. Replace the (at) with the @ symbol and the (dot) with a period!!
Plans are moving at a snail's pace, but they're moving. I will have the gallery up early next week, the derivative artworks will come later in the week, and I will then be announcing plans for an auction and some possible coverage of this outreach effort.
I want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to create and submit these hearts. I feel like I'm holding a piece of each of your hearts whenever I am working with the artworks.
P.S. Would love, love, love to break the 100 mark with artworks - so if you've been thinking it's too late, it's not - please send that heart in!!! (If you can get it to me by the end of the weekend, I'll put it in the mix!!)
