This past Friday I had my first real gallery opening at Maglianero in Burlington, VT! It was a fantastic night with a great crowd and in support of Food 4 Farmers.
Huge thank you to Sara Kassel for being my photographer for the night! She did a fantastic job.
Myself, Marcela Pino, Rick Peyser and Bill Mares spoke at the opening to discuss the important work of Food 4 Farmers. It was an honor for me to have three such inspiring people at the event.
Rick Peyser and Bill Mares signed their book, Brewing Change, which is the story of how Rick found his way in the coffee industry and has dedicated his time to increasing the standard of living for coffee farmers. A must-read that speaks to the heart.
30% of all the print sales went directly to Food 4 Farmers.
The opening received a mention in CoffeeTalk, Seven Days and the Shelburne News.
Huge thank to everyone who came to the opening, and a special thank you to Corey Goldsmith of Maglianero and Janice Nadworny of Food 4 Farmers who helped make the evening possible!
