Art auction benefit for Alley’s House

When: February 4, 7-11 p.m.

Where: Rising Gallery- 800 Jackson St., Dallas

Tomorrow I will be taking part in the Incrementum II art auction at Rising Gallery for the non-profit organization Alley’s House.

Located in Dallas, Alley’s House provides teen mothers with tutoring, counseling, and guidance. A few months ago I was given a tour of the facilities, and was able to see the myriad of ways Alley’s House supports young mothers. Their services include G.E.D. tutoring, classes on parenting, and providing clothing for the children.

Even if you won’t be able to purchase a piece of art, come by and support a great local charity and admire the beautiful artwork.

Tickets for the benefit are $25. Click here for more info.

My artwork at a museum? Sounds good!

I’m really excited about this. My photograph Shining Bright (shown below) is going to be on display at the Arlington Museum of Art’s Community Art Showcase October 5- November 13. From what I’ve seen, there’s definitely enormous talent in this exhibition. It’s for local artists, so come by and have a look at the wonderful artwork made by people in DFW!

Short story on Yahoo

Yahoo has published a short story I wrote called Dorm of Doom: A Short Tale of College. It’s mostly a comedy, which is odd for me to write since I don’t usually read humorous stories. I might be doing something similar to this in the future, and hopefully I’ll be writing more for Yahoo as well.

Image that inspired my short story

I’m excited to be expanding into literature, and this will definitely prepare me for the screenwriting classes I’ll be taking. Like most people, I’ve written stories before, but I’ve never published any of them online before.

As always, critiques are welcome!
