Last Friday, Mapel had the honor of hosting Gail Tussing as our featured artist. The elegance of her work is to be commended. From abstract to scenic, her art stirs up an emotion with every glance and naturally leads to deep contemplation. It was fascinating getting to know the inspiration or story behind each of her pieces, or create my own story to go with each unique abstract.
To compliment the evening, Mapel had the privilege of donating fifteen percent of sales to non-profit, Divine Threads. They will be housed in an old farm house, minutes from Mapel, and right now they are in the process of demolishing and remodeling. I can only imagine that it will be cozy and welcoming for the women who are making the choice to transition their current lifestyles into professional career paths. As a start-up non-profit there is a huge need of time, gently used clothes, and financial support, and they are so thankful for any and all contributions. If you ever need to revamp your closet and want to donate your clothing, Divine Threads is gladly accepting contributions. You may contact them via Facebook or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you missed our last event, please pencil in Friday July 19th from 4:30 to 8:30!
