Portraits of the Fallen Preview Reception, Nov. 12

Awhile back I painted a portrait of Private First Class Hannah L. Gunterman for a project called Portraits Of The Fallen.  You can read about that (quite emotional) experience here

The project is moving forward with it's ultimate plan of touring, and then installing a permanent memorial in Los Angeles. Please join us to support this heartfelt endeavor.

There will be a preview reception on Nov. 12th from 6pm-10pm at:

Terrell Moore Gallery
1221 S. Hope Street
Los Angeles, CA 90015

 "You, your family and friends are invited to a special reception in honor of Veterans Day, to view a special multi-media presentation of the first 100  art portraits completed by a diverse and talented Southern California "company" of artists. Also on display will be the actual art portraits of several of our fallen heroes whose families will be in attendance as well as a Medal of Honor recipient and a fallen member of the Navy Seal Elite Six team.
The Portraits of the Fallen Memorial project was launched last year in Palm Springs with the pairing of one soldier, one artist. The intention then was to form a 501c3 to enable the painting of all the California Fallen,(670 to date),also to develop a traveling exhibition of the art and ultimately to transfer the art to a permanent memorial. With the help and dedication of all the artists and volunteers we now have 100 finished portraits and have entered into a partnership with the prestigious Pasadena Arts Council's Emerge fiscal sponsorship program, so we can now raise the  funds  needed to accomplish these goals.

Let us always remember. Let us never forget.

Special thank you to Terrell Moore for offering his gallery for the reception and Dale Youngman, gallery manager.
