I've not been too active here for a while, and there is good reason. I'm not even participating in the upcoming H2H, dammit, and that hurts! Between being retired out of my career, (yes, I know I should have TONS of time but it just doesn't work that way. Once you retire you actually get BUSIER, you have been warned), moving, changing my life style to a water borne one and getting discovered by a whole new raft of people my life has taken wing.

And that brings me to the real subject of why I am posting, this is SPAM!!!

I have become involved . . . hell, I am now a co-producer, of a brand new art festival in the New Bern, NC area. Rather than waste time here, I'll just post a link to the website:

website---------> http://bridgetonriverfest.weebly.com/

and ask you folks to look through it. It is a ton of work and since this is the first ever time this show has ever been produced we are literally flying by the seat of our pants so we are having to invent everything we do.

I would also like to call your generous attention to this page on the site:

http://bridgetonriverfest.weebly.com/sponsor.html <------ No, go back and look dammit!

That's right, I am here, hat in hand, to beg money. The only reason you should consider, other than your kind and giving nature, is the fact we are trying to support the ARTS! To give artists and writers another venue to display and sell their work and beings we are all involved in ART here that might just be enough.

Oh, and it is a 501c(3) organization so it makes all your generous contributions a tax deduction.

. . . . . I notice that SOME of you haven't hit that "donate" button yet. Rolling Eyes

Hey Al,

Wish, WISH, I had the funds to donate or knew someone who did. Sad

Not to hijack your thread but...

Looking through your stuff on your website. Are the models in The Succubus & Hallway of Horror the same person? Or just the same boo... I mean outfit? Razz

I'm really digging your steampunk pieces! When did you start doing that genre? Success of the Self-Adjusting Mechanism is soo cool!

Ah thanks, been doing steampunk for about a year now.

Same model in the two shots mentioned, Violet was an outstanding model in more ways than one.

So, for those who cannot find it in their pocketbooks, (or hearts), to donate, can you at least send this information to anyone who might be able to help. We are working pretty much on a zero budget and any help- at all, no matter how small, would help.

How nice! I see you even have a blackmail section, like alumni donation lists! Smile
Good luck! Maybe we'll catch it some year: our kids and grandkids live in NC.

Thank you guys and yes, I will post photos here. This is really exciting to get a new venture off the ground. We are getting artists from all over the eastern half of North Carolina and have had several inquiries from out of state already so we must be doing something right.

Unfortunately, this did not happen this year. My co-producer, Pene, and I successfully staged two years of the show, it was profitable and popular both years. We started on year 3 (2013) and Pene decided, suddenly, she no longer wanted to do it and the project fell into my lap. I did it and frankly it was even better the third year, but I almost worked myself into the hospital so I decided that was the last for me. Three years, and it was profitable all three years so I feel we went out on a high note.
