Planning an art exhibit with another artist is a challenge but exciting. I am blessed to be exhibiting with Brad King who is extremely talented and also is a Christian who incorporates a message of hope in his work like I do. Our styles are different, but I am looking forward to see how our art compliments each other.
The title of our exhibit will be “Saints Squared: The Art of Brad King and Sara Drescher.” It’s a play on words since we are both Christians, my work is based on creating modern icons of saints, and he is only painting on square canvases for this show! The show will open March 3, 2107 at the Kamiposi Gallery at 510 S. Big Spring St. in Midland, TX.
At the opening we are going to have a silent auction for 3-4 paintings that will benefit Freedom 418 which is an group helping survivors of sex trafficking in Southeast Asia. We both know a young woman from Midland who is there working with the group and we want to support her efforts. I will post images of the silent auction paintings soon! We will take bids by email, social media and on site.
Brad and I collaborated on a painting together (see above) that will be in the silent auction. It is the story of the woman who was saved from stoning by Jesus. There will be a proper write up that will come with the painting.
I hope that if you are in the area, you will make a point to come out to see this unique exhibit! See you soon!
I plan to hold exhibits of this series of work in different kinds of places. I would love to be able to share the wonderful things each group is doing and then offer my work as a thank you for donating to these causes.
When you buy one of these paintings, prints or note card sets, you can specify which organization gets the money I donate. If you don’t feel strongly about one in particular, I am happy to spread the money equally.
When I exhibit in a church, I would like to donate a painting, in a silent auction at the reception, to directly benefit any outreach or missions that the church is doing.
Of course, if anyone just wants to donate directly to the causes, I will have information available to make that easier or you can link to each website via my website. www.seedsandlightproject.com
My art note cards are back in stock!I have 8 different series to choose from. Each set contains a variety of cards from that series not just the image on the front.
These note cards are blank so they are perfect for any occasion. If you need thank you notes for work, friends, or family, these cards add a special touch. They work well for birthday cards as well! Plus, you can tailor the symbolic meaning on the back to the person you are sending it to.
Sometimes you unexpectedly need a small gift. Having a few extra packs of cards on hand makes a great gift that is appreciated.

Fruit of the Spirit-this series has each of the 9 Fruit of the Spirit depicted as a different woman with the meaning for all of the imagery on the back of the card
