Philippo LoGrande Fundraiser

Free Association Gallery – Philippo LoGrande Fundraiser Saturday, December 12, 4–10 pm: We’ve all seen Philippo out painting the historic buildings of Ashland and Jacksonville. Well, his home burned down in August. Then he was diagnosed with inoperable, metastatic brain tumors. As a result, he has lost most cognitive function. He is now receiving treatment in California, but needs ongoing support, so this month’s event is a fundraiser to benefit Philippo and his caregivers. This month’s fundraiser includes three paintings by LoGrande, including the one featured in this post.

Enjoy this video, which shows not only LoGrande’s talent, but knowledge of art history, commitment to sharing his talent and skill, and gentle way of encouraging children to pursue art as a way of life themselves.

Please join us at 120 North 4th Street, Jacksonville, Oregon. Call 541-200-4184 to discuss ways you can help privately. If you can’t make it, please consider a donation to Philippo’s GoFund Me campaign here:
