Human Embryonic Stem Cell Therapy Restores Hope for Amanda

Thank you–Art Show Success & the Show Goes On…

Thank you to our bighearted community for your support and encouragement at the Opening Reception of Awakening:  A Portrait of Hope.  The show was an all-round success:  from raising money and creating awareness for my ongoing stem cell journey; to bringing interest and recognition to the masterful artwork of Dale Lee Roberts.

“The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.”–Michelangelo


How clever is He?

 “The best artist has that thought alone

Which is contained within the marble shell;

The sculptor’s hand can only break the spell

To free the figures slumbering in the stone.”–Michelangelo


Thank you to David and Kim Floria, who expressed that they have never seen so many people inside their gallery at one time.  Kim commented: “This exhibition brought heart and soul back into our gallery”.  Kim and David, you gave us a place to exhibit our creativity in a reputable gallery in Aspen, Colorado.  Wow.  Thank you.
