An Invitation from Anna Elkins to Take Heart Reception

anna elkins to take heart reception

You are invited to my art reception on Saturday, 8 October at South Stage Cellars. The exhibit is called Take Heart: The Art of Encouragement.

 

To say “take heart” is to encourage. To encourage is to inspire with spirit and hope. And the Latin root of “encourage” is cor—heart. It all comes back to the heart.

 

Alongside the paintings, I am launching my new greeting card line that night. The cards are a mix of encouraging images and poetry: perfect for giving away, keeping for yourself, or both!

 

You will also find the familiar combo of award-winning wine, complementary nibbles, and live music. But there’s a special twist this time around: the evening is also a fundraiser.

 

To continue the cycle of encouragement, I am giving 10% of all art and card sales on the reception night to The Studio at LivingOpportunities—and an ongoing 10% of
