A friend and fellow artist, Kathy Davis, has created an amazing non-profit art center that enhances the arts and culture for people within her extended community. Located in Horsham, PA (not too far from where I grew up!) it's an amazing place for connecting, taking classes and more.

The Scatter Joy Center for the Arts is  hosting a very big event on Friday evening, September 25, 2015. The event, entitled “Joy Squared”, will feature an exhibit of artwork on 6 x 6 inch canvases. The exhibited artwork will be sold that evening through a silent auction and all proceeds will benefit the art center.

My happy place - Tara ReedI decided to do something different and create a canvas to support this great cause.

I don't usually paint on canvas – it scares me a little to be honest! I paint on paper then scan it into my computer and put things together in Photoshop. I can move, change and manipulate things in ways that can't be done on a canvas. But getting out of your comfort zone is always (usually?) a good thing so I went for it.

This coffee canvas will be going in the mail today and heading across the country!  I also created a video of the work in progress if you want to see that too.Scatter Joy Arts Center auction - September 2015

Join in the fun and contribute some of your time and talents to this worthwhile fundraising effort. Also, please share this information with your friends and family and encourage them to get involved. If you live in the Horsham, PA area, go check it out!  (Send me a photo of my canvas on the wall too if you think of it!)

Here's to art opportunities in our communities!
