My professors, Linda Arbuckle, Nan Smith, and Anna Calluori Holcombe, at the University of Florida have each donated a work of art to help raise funds to pay for my trip to china. Donating works and organizing the raffle was an amazing gesture and I feel very honored and grateful that they would do this for me. The department met at the Bistro in Gainesville for an end of the year lunch for everyone that was leaving town and I pulled the raffle tickets.
Winner of the Anna Calluori piece: TJ Erdahl
Winner of the Nan Smith porcelain teabowl: Kathleen Gunning
Winner of the Linda Arbuckle bowl: Barbara Brown.
Thank you to everyone who participated, it has really made a difference.
