Dear Friends,


“Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same -- with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead.”
- Mother Teresa


I can’t thank everyone enough for the enduring work that we have done together over the years to benefit our communities and children’s education. During the Framery’s show this weekend, March 30th and 31st, I will be reuniting with Atlanta’s chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society, The Mossaphiles. This hard working chapter will be raffling a print during my show to benefit the Moss Foundation.


The Framery Gallery owner, Barry Watson, has been a Moss dealer since 1981.  His family and staff, and all the friends that I’ve made there, make this show feel just like a homecoming. I found a picture from our March 2011 show to share, and I am thinking that we may have some fun and try to recreate it.


March 2011. The Framery’s wonderful team!  In the very front, kneeling, is Beth Garrett and beside her is Lindsay Svetlay.  Back row, L. to R.:  Emily and Caroline Watson, daughters of Barry and Pam Watson; Suzanne and Mel Abramovitz, Patty’s and my wonderful hosts for the weekend; Peggy Powell; Pam and Barry Watson, owners of The Framery; me; my dear friend Sue Brissey; and my daughter Patty.


I will also be travelling to Marietta with the 2019 Foundation quilt and raffle tickets. Have you seen it? It is gorgeous. I’ve been told that the creators of this year’s quilt, Jeannine McNeill and Linda Gorman may be coming to the show. I do hope so.


The 2019 Moss Foundation Quilt. Raffle tickets are $3 each, or 2 for $5. To get your tickets, you may email the Foundation at or call the office at 800-430-1320. You don’t want to miss out!


Speaking of quilters, Penny Westbrook, donated her time and materials to the Foundation in the making of a very festive quilt. I am so grateful for Penny and her gift to the Moss Foundation. The hand-painted centerpiece that she chose to work with is one of my rabbits. This quilt is currently on display in Waynesville, Ohio at Canada Goose Gallery. Canada Goose Gallery is holding a raffle for this quilt and the drawing is April 20th. The proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Moss Foundation and PALs for Life, a multi-dimensional breast cancer support group. Tickets are $1 each, or 6 for $5. Please follow this link for tickets and for more information.


Here is Penny Westbrook’s quilt on display at Canada Goose Gallery. Isn’t is lovely? For more information contact Canada Goose Gallery at (513) 897-4348


I want to take a moment and introduce you to 3rd Avenue Art Gallery and Custom Framing by Jenks. They have just joined the Moss family by becoming our newest dealer. They are located in Huntington, West Virginia and I am delighted to tell you that I will be there for a show on April 12th and 13th! I will have all the details in next week’s newsletter, including a picture of the print that we will be releasing.


On March 21st, my daughters Mary and Becky accompanied me to the Shenandoah Valley Tourism Association, SVTA, annual meeting held at the Mimslyn Inn in beautiful Luray, Virginia. I have fond memories of visiting the Mimslyn, as I have painted it and my son John was the chef there for a number of years. If you’re not familiar with the SVTA, they are the oldest regional, private sector destination marketing organization in the United States, having formed in 1924. For the last 60 years, this organization has presented the Shenandoah Bowl Award to an individual or entity for outstanding achievements that resulted in awareness and recognition of the Shenandoah Valley. I am grateful to be this year’s recipient. I join the ranks of some very special people who have also received this award. Among them are renowned photographer O. Winston Link, former U.S. Senators John Warner and Harry F. Byrd, Jr., the Statler Brothers, historical documentary producer Ken Burns and Virginia Hensley Dick, best known as Patsy Cline.


Here is the Shenandoah Bowl Award from the SVTA. Pictured with me is Julie Armel, the Association’s immediate past president and deputy director of community relations at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester.


Until next week,
