March 2017: Barbara Wyatt "Nasty Woman" Pendants proved to be a great Fundraiser. Over $300 raised for our local ywCA
Thank you Barbara Wyatt for making and donating your time to a great cause. Barbara is a very talented, local artist and very good friend of ARTspot. Barbara is one of the most versatile artists ever! She is always learning and teaching new techniques.
When she decided to go to the Women's March in Washington DC this January, she went into production mode making these delightful "Nasty Women" pendants. It seems she could not make enough of them, as so many women who saw them wanted one!
This month's community fundraiser was for the YWCA. This organization helps homeless women and children in our community.
