About this event

When I was juried into the Touchstone Gallery, I was excited about joining a new (for me) and vibrant community of artists and to preparing new work for a future solo show.

Then came COVID and I, like many others, struggled for inspiration while solo shows at the gallery took an 18 month pause.

In June of this year, I received a diagnosis of ALS. As devastating as it was to learn that I couldn’t walk or dance again, I could still paint. Or so I thought. The disease quicky overtook and disabled my fine motor muscles and my ability to do that which I loved most; to paint, to create, and to hold closely those I love the most.

I am extremely grateful to the wonderful artists of the Touchstone Gallery, many I have not even met yet, for allowing me this opportunity to share my work. I have been touched by the many kind messages I have received from people who value my art enough to purchase it for their homes or businesses and who still find inspiration from it,

Those of my generation will understand that the theme of this show is a nod to the 1971 film of the same name. But while the film was a commentary on a dying town and a dying art form, I view this show as a celebration of my life with art.

I hope you will enjoy it, certainly my last with Touchstone Gallery

I will be sharing the Touchstone exhibit space with Heather Lynn. Our shows will be open to the public from Novemeber 4-28. There will be a public opening for both shows on Sunday, November 7th from 3-5 PM.

Guests to the private reception on Nov. 13th will be expected to be vaccinated and social distancing and masks will be required. The Gallery is open to the public on the 13th from 12-5 PM. You are invited to arrive early and view Heather's work prior to joining us at the private reception.

Even if you are unable to attend, if you have pictures of you with Donna'a art, please send it to the return address on this email. We are assembling a commemorative scrapbook for Donna.
