CHAIR-ITY

Tony Risucci  Student Artist Collaborator on the BEE CHAIR
 Take a Seat!! Our  Bee-Chair for Chair-ity is Ready for Action!!
( I really shouldn't be blogging this late)

Furniture design isn't my usual genre, so I enlisted the help of some talented student collaborators. Toni Risucci of Watertown and Emily Wilcox of Naugatuck, graciously contributed some of their handiwork to the Chair-ity project. Local artists and designers were asked to donate a chair of their choice for a fundraising auction to benefit the Waterbury Youth Service System, Inc. The theme was up to us. So it is no surprise that a particular pollinator was bound to show up in the design:)! The Cocktail Reception and Chair-ity auction will be held at the Country Club of Waterbury on Friday, May 11th,2012 from 5:30PM- 8:30 PM.This seating extravaganza will be on view in prominent  business locations in the Greater Waterbury and Litchfield areas before the May 11th event.

 Designer -Wendy Osborn
  Among the other talent asked to participate in this auction, is our own local art/designer Wendy Osborn. Can't wait to see her creation! Wendy is the owner of Vintage Visions which  currently operates out her home-based studio.Wendy does both hand-painted accessories and restoration of vintage furniture. I stole some work from her FB page to give you a glimpse. A website is coming soon, which I'll post in the future.
