A note from Judy Mitchell:

Hi All.

My husband Don Friedlich's art jewelry will be featured at a benefit for CERF+, an organizaion that provides loans and grants to craft artists who have experienced disasters that prevent them from working. CERF+ has helped artists who have suffered life-threatening illnesses or natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, and studio fires. As you can imagine, most craft artists cannot afford health or other insurance, so this kind of aid is incredibly important.

The benefit will be held on Thursday Nov, 11th at HYART Gallery on 133 Johnson St. (off State Street heading east). It is free and open to the public. The hours are 5:30 to 8:00, meaning you can come, see Don's work, and still make it to the Terrance Hayes reading at 7:00. (No pressure, of course. I'm just saying if you want to do both, you can.)

10% of all of HYART's sales at the benefit and through the weekend will go to CERF+

For more info on Don, here's a link to a WSJ article that ran this Sunday.
