The Meaning of Life

posted Sep 5, 2018, 5:20 PM by Tammy Kaufman   [ updated Nov 24, 2018, 2:48 PM ]

I believe the true meaning of life is measured in what we do for the more vulnerable among us. As such, protecting our environment and animals in need is dear to my heart and an important part of who I am. Although I am transitioning away from marketing my works for sale, for those paintings still available in galleries through the remainder of this year,
all profits are donated to animal and environmental charities - a list of the charities I support is in the menu bar above. Additionally, many of my available unframed works will continue to be offered for free (except for shipping costs), as a thank you for donating to my supported charities, and I welcome inquiries about this. 
The charities I support generally list on their websites suggested donation amounts specific to their needs, most often starting in the ten to fifty dollar range, but any amount is appreciated.

Roxboro Show Extended!

posted Jul 31, 2018, 3:07 PM by Tammy Kaufman

I'm honored that the Kirby Cultural Arts Complex Gallery in Roxboro has requested to extend the exhibit of my pastel paintings in their newly renovated Upstairs Gallery through the month of August due to popular demand! These special paintings inspired by the natural beauty of North Carolina are on display and available for purchase in the Upper Gallery at Kirby now through August, with all profits donated to environmental and animal charities. Several of these works have already sold, so stop by the gallery soon and get yours before they're gone. The Kirby Cultural Arts Complex is located at 213 North Main Street in Roxboro. I'd like to personally invite you to attend the August Reception, to be held Friday evening, August 10, from 6-8 p.m.

Every Picture Tells a Story - Solo Exhibit at the Wake County Justice Center

posted Feb 13, 2018, 6:04 PM by Tammy Kaufman   [ updated May 7, 2018, 6:43 AM ]

I was honored to have the Raleigh United Arts Council contact me to see if I'd be interested in displaying 40 of my local landscape pastel paintings for a solo exhibit at the Wake County Justice Center - and of course I said yes! The paintings were delivered this evening, and will be on display on the 2nd (lobby and accounting office), 3rd (taxes office) and 4th (commissioners and county attorney office suites) floors of the Center from February 14 through May 8, 2018. The Justice Center has entrances at 301 South McDowell Street and 300 South Salisbury Street in downtown Raleigh, and the hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. All of these works are available for sale by contacting me directly and as always, the profits from sales of my paintings are donated to nonprofit animal and environmental charities.
