Art on the Hill

Ann Haas! What a labor of Love....A gorgeous charity auction gala held at the PINEHILL B&B on Sunday September 7th. I donated a PMC abstract pendant with black and white freshwater pearls and was in the company of about 40 fine artists! WOW....first of all the location was enchanting....Chris...the place is magical...the artwork was displayed throughout the first floor and the dining room held an array of delicacies...by none other than Ann and her husband...do you think in your spare time you could open a restaurant???? Just kidding Ann...I do NOT know where you find the time....the audience enjoyed wine and fine hors d'oeuvres under a huge white canopy while bidding on these items to benefit the ROCK RIVER CENTER.

I had the joy of sitting with a favorite artist of mine...Jan Harvey and husband Ron. Jan's artwork sold really well in my gallery...Dragonfly Gallery...especially her gorgeous palette knife work! Check it out! www.janharveyart.com.
Also...since I had the pleasure of visiting with Bronze Sculptor Jeff Adams and gorgeous wife Kathy...here is his website too....he just finished pouring the life size bronze of Olympic Gold Medal Winner Shawn Johnson!!!!

The Rock River Center
is a non profit agency that is the designated focal point by the State of IL to provide services for individuals 60 + years throughout Ogle County. The $ raised from this event will be used toward the new facilities and services for seniors.
