Please support my artist residency!

I am thrilled that my project plan has been accepted for a SEPTEMBER artist residency in Vallauris, France: the town where Picasso created his ceramics. 

My amazing opportunity comes with no stipend, so I am seeking funding help. 

I will be in Vallauris September 4- October 5. During this time I will have no income from the Met Museum where I am a free-lance teaching artist; and no income from the private and semi-private family workshops in my Brooklyn studio.

For nearly 5 decades, (even with the wolf making periodic visits to my door), I have been fortunate to be able to keep on creating many different studio settings. Deeply inspired by Picasso's ceramics and his etchings, I am excited to see what might develop in this 'town of 100 potters'...

I've pretty much covered most costs by doing an extra teaching (ceramic-jewelry-making) residency in a Brooklyn Senior Center; Artwork 'Flash Sales' during South Brooklyn Open Studios; and of course using my air miles from credit cards! 

BUT, I am seeking your help toward cost of meals; some art materials; costs of getting the new artwork back home to NYC; and covering rent etc in NYC while I am away at the residency.

This adventure is on my bucket list, but there is a bit of a hole in the bucket!

This is a one-time fundraiser intended to support an individual artist. Any contribution amount is gratefully accepted.
