There is so much to tell that it is impossible for me to fit everything into one mere post! However, I’ll give you all a little glimpse of what will be here on this blog in the coming months…
First, we will make a special VINCENT FARRELL PRINT GIVEAWAY for the Holidays! A special person will receive a signed, limited edition print created by Vincent Farrell in remembrance of our father’s birthday, which is December 9th . We want you all to keep checking back here for the details of this wonderful giveaway!
Secondly, upon numerous requests, I will create an online gallery space to exhibit Vincent Farrell’s art here on this blog. We will have a collection of paintings, fine art serigraphs and lithographic limited edition signed and numbered prints available online for purchase. There will be all price ranges so no one will be excluded from having an opportunity to purchase an original Vincent Farrell piece of art.
In an effort to contribute to causes and charities that touch and impact my life and Dion’s, we will make charitable art contributions to enrich and help the lives of others. This is a tradition held by our father and one that Dion and I both eagerly want to continue . We will consider charities which impact children, young artists from the least likely places and women’s causes. Through the gift of art, we seek to lift the spirits of those around us and to honor our father . As the holiday season draws near, what better way for us to effect change than to elevate the human spirit by making a charitable gesture with art?
“We will fail unless we consciously appreciate the value of art in our lives and take practical steps to encourage the artist and preserve his work.”, General Dwight D. Eisenhower’s speech delivered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on April 2, 1946 when he was presented with an Honorary Life Fellowship for his efforts in preserving art during World War II.
