Several Rochester Artisans have hand crafted ornaments in this sale
“If you’ve ever been moved by a beautiful piece of art, you’re actually following a natural biological inclination. According to a new field called neuroaesthetics, the human brain appears to be built for art appreciation. Scientists are now exploring the reasons why.”
“It’s no wonder the brain gets going on so many levels. Art therapy has been proven effective, for example, in helping with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia because it keeps the mind active – stimulating the senses, triggering memories and inviting connections with others through conversation.”

Rochester Artisan Barbara Tuttle owns Glimmer Jewels and she is also a docent at The George Eastman House. In 2012 she alerted me to their annual Festival of Trees fundraiser that she thought might be a good fit for us. Community members decorate a 3′ tree provided (with lights) by the Eastman House, and donate it back to the house, to be sold in a silent auction. They also auction wreaths in the same manner, I believe and it’s held along with their wonderful gingerbread house exhibition. Barb was right – this tree thing is right up our alley!
So we did our first tree in 2012.
We participated again in 2013, with even better results! This time we knew what we were doing and we decorated the tree together, which was really fun. There may have been wine involved.
Major thanks to Lori Prince for taking such fabulous photographs for us.
You see where this is going, don’t you? We’re doing a tree for 2014! We are holding our tree decorating party in the exact same space in The Hungerford Building that we did last year – but under new management. Last year, Rochester Artisan and painter Ann Campbell very generously offered her studio for our tree decorating party. This year, by coincidence, the same suite is now home to Hungerford 318, a partnership of 5 artists, all of whom are Rochester Artisans (Jean Keane, Lori Prince, Stefani Tadio, Mary Terziani and Tom Zachman).
The party is on November 8, which is Second Saturday so other studios and shops will be open as well. Second Saturday runs 10:00 – 3:00 but we’ll define the party as just two hours.

Bring as many ornaments as you’d like because we’ve learned it’s impossible to have too many ornaments. (The first year we did this, we went to see the Festival of Trees and were amazed at how packed some of the trees were with ornaments.) Your ornaments must be handmade. (And if you happen to have or see stuff on clearance, we can also use “filler” things – ribbons, “picks”, etc. Not much is needed, but we found a little something here and there really fills out the tree.)
Light refreshments will be served. There is an elevator with attendant to help you to the 3rd floor, or you can walk the stairs. There is temporary handicap access so if that is needed, please let us know know at what time you’ll be coming so we can schedule the building manager or one of us to be available to help you.
If you are unable to attend the tree decorating party, but still want to participate, you can make arrangements to get your ornaments to us by emailing email@example.com. The five us live all over the area so I’m sure we can work something out mutually convenient.
Kindly RSVP so we can make proper arrangements and send reminders as the date approaches. The sign on the finished tree will indicate it was donated by Rochester Artisans, but technically any artist is welcome to join us. We just want a really creatively beautiful tree that will raise big bucks for the George Eastman House and to have fun doing it.
Community members are invited to submit 2D art to GlobeMed at the University of Rochester’s 3rd Annual Art Gala, “SAY SOMETHING”. The juried exhibition will be held the beginning of December 2014 to the end of January 2015, with a First Friday opening reception on December 5th.
This year, our theme is focused on advocacy. We’re giving you the freedom to design any masterpiece that speaks to you, for you and about you. What gets you excited? What do you wish you could change? What are you proud of? Speak to us; SAY SOMETHING!
Submissions are due on November 7th, 2014. EVERYONE is welcome to submit art. Cost of submissions is $15 for up to 3 art pieces.
Artists will receive a commission from any artwork sales; all other proceeds benefit the non-profit organization, Kallpa Iquitos in Peru. Kallpa works with youth groups to combat youth violence, drug use and teenage pregnancies, develop leadership skills through community workshops and provide educational resources to further collegiate-level education!

OCTOBER 21-24: Judging
OCTOBER 26: Winners Announced at Edible Expo
I recently made a new friend, the director of the Perinton Historical Society. We had an appointment at Fairport Pharmacy last week, and even though her first name is Vicki with an “i”, I was half-expecting an old geezer. I say geezer in a loving way, being a woman of a certain age myself. :-)
Vicki Profitt is younger than I am (so who’s the geezer now??) By the end of our short conversation, we felt like we were related, we have so much in common. It was fun.
She told me about a fundraiser they are holding to benefit the Perinton Historical Society so naturally, I thought of my artist friends!
Donate a decorated tree, wreath or gift basket for silent auctions to benefit the
Perinton Historical Society.
