Note from Chestnut Group Founder on the eve of “Painting to Preserve”
To All the Incredible Artists of the Chestnut Group,
What an outstanding effort you have together made to bring this 20th Anniversary Show to life! Great leadership- Karen Philpott, both vision and rolling up her sleeves hanging, Dale, Ellen, Ed, Renee, Donna, Beverley, Annie, Hayden, Bitsy, Brigitte, Melody, Suzanne, and all the other Chestnuts who volunteered their time and talent this week. You guys are the best of us all tonight. A special thank you to Suzannah Green for keeping everyone focused then securing the incredible recognition from the StyleBlueprint article and attention of our entire city.
Best of luck to each of you tomorrow night. I will miss seeing all of you and the gorgeous display of your talents. Whether or not your work finds a home in the next few days, know that every action, every risk you took matters. I could not be more proud to be a part of what together we have created over these last 20 years.
