Benefit for Mary Humphrey, Sunday

Friday, February 25th, 2005

Brian and I will be performing on Sunday in Jackson. The event is a benefit to help Mary Humphrey, a Jackson Potter/Instructor. Her studio burned to the ground on Christmas Eve. I don’t know Mary, but a woman I know in Working Women Artists knows her and asked if we would entertain. We’re delighted to contribute.

Here is what the flier says:

Starting Over

Ella Sharp Museum
Sunday, February 27, 2005 – 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
There will be live intertainment and light refreshments served.


To Help Rebuild Mary HumphreyÂ’s Studio

Fire destroyed MaryÂ’s clay studio on Christmas Eve, 2004.
The structure, equipment, tools, reference materials, clay, chemicals, and countless art pieces were lost. 25 years of awards and memories.

There will be a silent auction with the proceeds going to help rebuild MaryÂ’s Studio. There is an incredible collection of artwork including: Paintings, Pottery, Fiber Art and many other fun items. There will be staggered closing times for the auctioned items to insure (sic) you will not leave empty handed.

Some of the pottery pieces are donated by nationally known artist such as Phil Rogers, Scot Frankenberger, John Glick, Dick Lehman, I.B. Remsen, Marie Woo as well as many potters within the Mid-Michigan region.

DonÂ’t miss your chance to bid on these works of art and help Mary get back to making art.

Good-will donations will be accepted at the door.
Ella Sharp Museum, 3225 Fourth Street, Jackson, MI 49203- 517-787-2320

(So that the whole post today is not a bummer, just look at the kids I had at CityKidz Knit! on Thursday. Believe it or not, Thursday is my slow day. Wednesday I had nine at once, and four were boys. Two of the kids you see here just learned to knit on Wednesday and were back for more on Thursday. One is having lots of “hiccups” but she doesn’t mind at all, and the other took to it like a fish to water. The girl second from right was working on a wristband in variegated pastels, that she later gave to me. I’ve worn it two days in a row. I love these kids SOooooooo much!!!)
