MLK ART SALES TO BENEFIT UNCF Campaign for Emergency Student Aid

AMERICAN DREAM (Atlanta) © Katy Allgeyer

I’m a big dreamer and belong to a couple of wonderful dream circles. Martin Luther King appeared to me in several dreams over the years. In one of my dreams, I actually heard Dr. King reciting his famous “I have a dream” speech. I’m not sure if it was a flashback memory for me…I was 8 years old when he made that speech. In any case, I felt compelled to honor that vision with one of my super large paintings (48″ x 60″) in my Location Series. Above is the result: mixed media acrylic paint, oil sticks, road maps of Atlanta, ink on canvas, paper artist’s palette. The original painting is a central focus in my dining room right now and is available for sale ($4,500). 25% of sales of this painting will be donated by Feng Shui By Fishgirl to the United Negro College Fund Campaign For Emergency Student Aid. In addition, I offer half-size giclée reproduction prints ($630) on stretched canvas (24″ x 30″) that I varnish by hand–the closest thing to an original painting and I’m betting many of your friends won’t be able to tell the difference ;-D.  Prices include shipping. Contact katyallgeyer@mac.com to purchase.

BY POPULAR DEMAND: For those who want to help the cause: Signed 8.5″ x 11″ giclées on unstretched (flat) canvas are available for $50 each (includes shipping) and 25% will also be donated.

Looking for a worthy charity to donate to this holiday season? Check out Dog Tags For Kids, a program designed to help put smiles on the faces of the kids of our troops overseas. It’s a wonderfully creative program and the website has other great links where you can email troops messages for the holidays, etc. Support our troops (they didn’t create the policy)!
