Artist Appreciation Project gets bigger each year...

AAP3 was a HUGE success!!!

Those of you who made it out, thanks so much for coming..those who didn't, we hope to see you at this year's!!

To get you up to speed, AAP3 (Artist Appreciation Project), had it's 3rd annual event on October 22, 2008. This non-profit organization was created by myself and my wife who is also an artist, to give more to artists by letting people view them working in a "live" gallery setting. It's no price you can put on a piece when you've seen it done in front of you. This year we were lucky to be able to partner with Artshare LA, and we couldn't have been happier. The night was filled with great music, great drinks, great food and creative people!
