Michael Golden Goes Full Spectrum--Help Light the Night--Sept. 11th
The "Spectrum" art show is slated to begin at the Society of Illustrators in Manhattan as per below, with an opening reception September 11th, 2009.
I'm pleased that one of my artist's Michael Golden has been included in this beautiful show. (Note though that Michael, Mark Texeira and myself will be off speaking at a forum in China --More on that later--so won't be at the opening--although we would have loved to be there with you all.)
However, I'm very pleased that a percentage of proceeds from the event will be going to a good cause-- the "Leukemia and Lymphoma Society--Light the Night" event.
My Grandmother, Maw Maw, survived colon cancer and lived another 15 spunky years, and my Mom has survived breast cancer twice... strong women, who both went through so much. So.... I do of course applaud the Society of Illustrators for setting aside monies and efforts to celebrate and commemorate the lives of those touched by cancer.
Consider going to the opening... A great night surrounded by beauty and like-minded people. :-) Give to a good cause.
And at the same time, remember the other's that the date September 11th brings to mind. What better way than to "light the night" with hope.

--Opening Reception on Sept. 11th Helps "Light the Night"
New York--"Spectrum: The Exhibition" is once again being mounted at The Society of Illustrators in Manhattan, this time, with renowned illustrator and storyteller Michael Golden adding to the kaleidoscope of talent featured in this stellar event, subtitled: "The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art."
Schedule for display September 1st-October 17th, "Spectrum: The Exhibition," will feature select works culled from Spectrum's yearly publication of fine art in the advertising and illustration world. Michael's piece for inclusion this year is his award winning piece, "Rush Hour," for original client Upper Deck, and art director, Mark Irwin.
The opening reception for the event takes place Friday, September 11 at 6 p.m. Admission is $40. non-members, and $35. for members. Complimentary refreshments will be served until 8 p.m.
A percentage of the proceeds from this exhibit will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's "Light the Night Walk"--a nation-wide two to three mile evening fundraising walk during which participants carry illuminated balloons to celebrate and commemorate lives touched by cancer.
But you don't have to attend the Spectrum exhibit to help out a great cause! To view and make a donation to the Society of Illustrators team fundraising page, access: http://pages.lightthenight.org/nyc/Manhattan09/SocietyofIllustrators
Of course the Reception is not to be missed either, as artists and members celebrate what is so wonderful about the field of illustration. The Society is, afterall, the perfect place for such a celebration. Their past members have included the likes of Rockwell,Parrish, Lyndecker, Flagg and more, with current members such as Michael Kaluta, Frank Frazetta, Joe Jusko, Bill Sienkiewcz, Mark Texeira and many many more!
