Pacha Mama moves onto Mina Dresden
Pacha Mama, my largest painting to date, is now on display at the Mina Dresden Gallery in SF. This piece has been received well by clients but her size(6.5ft x 9ft)
has prohibited many potential buyers. This is a very special piece to me and I want it to have a really good home. The Mina Dresden gallery is hosting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium Foundation's San Francisco Cocktail Reception and Silent Auction on May 6, 2010. I have donated Pacha Mama and am very pleased to have her hanging in such a beautiful space.
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium is a network of nine leading academic medical centers and children’s hospitals, including the University of California-San Francisco, that conducts research on brain tumors in children in the hopes of quickly finding a cure. The goal of the PBTC Foundation is to raise funds to support this critical research for children. Support from the National Cancer Institute only covers basic Consortium operating expenses. There is a tremendous need for funds to research how and whether new treatments are affecting both children’s tumors and their healthy bodies. Funding for the PBTC Foundation comes primarily from individual donations – caring friends and families who understand the drastic impact of this disease.
