An Invitation cometh:

Sarahbushka has received an invitation to join with other Artists in an Exhibition coming next year.

ArtFirst! is an international, juried exhibition and sale of original art and fine crafts by artists with physical and mental disabilities, presented by the Auxiliary of the University Medical Center at Princeton. ArtFirst!, through its annual 6 week exhibition in the public spaces of UMCP, seeks to raise public awareness of the unlimited creative talent of artists with disabilities; provide a venue for these artists to display and sell their work; and enhance the experience of UMCP patients, visitors, and staff with the inspirational work of ArtFirst! artists.

~We have not decided whether we will be submitting necklaces this year or not. Sarahbushka has been very busy with a new skill she has been patiently learning since October, and that is sewing. Sarahbushka joined a sewing club at her day job (her program); and came home with a tote bag on the first day. She made it by herself! To date, she has made: tote bag, 2 pillows, a native american doll w/shawl wrap and a little baby in papoose, a pillow case, and a pair of lounging boxer style shorts!~
