encaustic fish paintingHi, Family, Friends and Art Lovers,

As you know I now have a studio at the Lorton Workhouse Arts Center (Studio 509). I have been there just over a year and I know many of you have been there to see what a great place this is. The 17 Artists in Building 5 at the Lorton Workhouse Arts Center contributed items for a Fundraising Raffle Gift Basket that we call “The Art Experience”. I want you to have a chance to win it!

“The Art Experience” basket has over 30 items in it and is valued at close to $2000.00!

Some of the items in our basket are:

7 original works of art, including the above encaustic piece by Julia Dzikiewicz


boxes of notecards

a personal docent tour to an art museum

Michael’s gift certificate


music CD’s

live guitar music gift certificate

and more!


For a chance to win this “Art Experience” you can purchase raffle tickets from me or come into Building 5 at the Workhouse to see it for yourself. Each of the eight Studio and Gallery Buildings will have unique gift baskets for raffle. The tickets are 3 for $5.00. If you want some, please mail me a check made payable to LORTON ARTS FOUNDATION (LAF) and include your contact information so you can be contacted when you win! (Name, Address, Phone #, E-mail)

The Drawing will take place at the Collector’s Showcase and Small Works Event on December 12th. You do not have to be present to win.
