Under a canopy of ancient oaks, 32 artists will display finely crafted works, from elegant wearables to memorable gifts. “Art on Palm really does have something for everyone”, states Mary Jane Elgin, the event-s co-founder. “Art on Palm promotes gifted local artists, rewards a loyal audience with fresh and unique work, and even raises funds for the Greater L.A. Fisher House.”
Since 2006, Art on Palm artists have donated a portion of their sales to the Greater L.A. Fisher House Foundation, which provides humanitarian support for hospitalized military personnel and their families. “The Greater L.A. Fisher House acknowledges this generosity. Contributions from Art on Palm help us provide much-needed humanitarian relief to military members and their families during hospitalization at the Westwood V.A”, commented Tim Byk, Founder and Executive Director, Greater L.A. Fisher House Foundation, www.greaterlafisherhouse.org
