Detail of Colleen's quilt featuring Ugandan animals

Colleen Lindsey has been hard at work on a quilt to be raffled off at the Columbia City Gallery on Sunday, May 23rd from 6:30-8:30 pm  to benefit the Volunteer Artists Program (VAP). The event will raise funds to send artists to Uganda to work with the Batwa Pygmies to find a way to sustain themselves. Seattle Times columnist Jerry Large recently wrote a nice profile of Marsha Conn and her work with the Batwa.

The event is free and the raffle tickets for a chance at Colleen’s amazing quilt are only $5!
