Announcement - Loyalhanna Watershed Association

I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited to participate in this year's Loyalhanna Watershed Association's Annual Dinner and Benefit Art Auction on Saturday, September 17, 2011. I will have a piece included in the Silent Auction that evening. I am so very happy to be able to help out this organization, they do wonderful work to conserve, protect, and restore the environment in that area. The event has been the Association's largest fundraiser and has a 26 year history - pretty impressive!

About the Loyalhanna Creek Watershed:

"The 298 square-mile Loyalhanna Creek Watershed is located in Westmoreland County in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The Loyalhanna Creek originates on the western slope of Laurel Ridge, south of Ligonier Township, and flows northwest through Ligonier, Latrobe, New Alexandria, and finally on to Saltsburg where it meets the Conemaugh River. Together, they form the Kiskiminetas, which flows into the Allegheny River.

The Loyalhanna Creek Watershed is comprised of 2,500 miles of stream, each varying in origin, size, and quality. Despite abundant forests in the headwaters and natural areas throughout its middle section, the Loyalhanna Creek Watershed is impacted by a series of challenges including abandoned mine drainage (AMD), sedimentation as a result of erosion, and nutrient loading. The combination of historic coal mining, farming, and development threaten the Loyalhanna Creek Watershed and its quality."

  1. That's great news - congratulations! Do you know which piece you are going to submit for the silent auction? ~Sara

  2. Thanks, Sara! You know, I haven't selected the piece that I will be donating. I probably haven't painted it yet :) Most likely it will be a creek painting that I do at one of my favorite spots over the summer.
