Imagining the VegFest Theme “Peaceful Plates, Peaceful World”
Sedona is uniquely blessed with an active art community and many artists who share our dedication to a healthy, humane, and sustainable world. Each year, one of these local artists creates and donates to Sedona VegFest an original artwork reflective of that year’s theme. The theme of Sedona VegFest 2018 is “Peaceful Plates, Peaceful World,” and we are thrilled to feature a gorgeous painting of that title by Susan Pitcairn. The work is 36″x36″, gallery wrap acrylic, and is valued at $3000. It is being offered for sale/auction by Healthy World Sedona with 100% of proceeds donated by the artist to support Sedona VegFest. The purchaser will also receive a complimentary signed copy of “Spirit of the Earth,” Pitcairn’s inspiring full-color volume of a lifetime of paintings and poetry reflecting nature and spirit. Anyone interested in acquiring “Peaceful Plates, Peaceful World” outright or placing a bid is invited to contact Public Relations Manager Jon Thompson at PR@healthyworldsedona.com.
