Monet, Bamboo and S.O.S.

On May 4th Jason Monet celebrated his 70th birthday kicking off a week long party and retrospective exhibition of his work. The opening night was an extravaganza of traditional Balinese music followed by rock and roll.

Other reasons for the shindig were raising money for the Sumatran Orangutan Society and a house warming for his recently completed 2 bamboo house complex. Jason has worked tirelessly promoting the plight of the orangutan. Part of his mission to save them is promoting bamboo as an alternative resource for wood. If more people used bamboo, which is complete renewable, the habitat of creatures like the Sumatran Orangutan would be saved. This is more than lip service as his beautiful bamboo palaces clearly state. Everything is made of bamboo.

Thanks to Jason and S.O.S. for a wonderful time.

Art Auction

Recently at a charity event for Mercy High School in Northern California, JL Galleries and Jane Flynn donated a Neal Adams painting. This small painting of a flower raised over $850- for the school. JL Galleries would like to thank the buyer and Jane Flynn for their participation in helping the students of Mercy High. It is a pleasure to help out while spreading good art around the world.

Amed and the Shea Center

Pendergrast Amed

Last month JL Galleries donated Kerry Pendergrast’s ‘Amed’ to a charity event in Southern California benefiting the Shea Center / Fran Joswick Riding Center. They work with disabled children providing therapy through the riding of horses. These horses can be very costly with the stables and feed. The night was a complete success with Kerry Pendergrast’s painting raising $1800- for the cause. We at JL Galleries would like to thank all the other donators’ of auctionables and a special thanks to the volunteers that make this wonderful program function.
