ROSE CITY GALLERIES HOSTS THE PAINTER OF LIGHT™
THOMAS KINKADE PERSONAL APPEARANCE AT ABERNATHY CENTER,
OREGON CITY, OREGON
Lake Oswego, OR: - November 25, 2008 Rose City Galleries is delighted to host Thomas Kinkade, the Painter of Light™ in person on Sunday, December 7, 2008, from 12 noon to 3:00 p.m. at the Abernathy Center in Oregon City, OR as the artist completes the last leg of the 2008 Share the Light™ Tour. Kinkade will share with guests a special message about the making of Thomas Kinkade's Christmas Cottage, the first-ever movie about the Worlds' Most Collected Living Artist.
Two of his newest holiday Limited Edition releases will be featured - Christmas in New York depicting the romantic Rockefeller Center bedecked for the holidays, and Graceland Christmas. Describes Thomas Kinkade: "The lighting of the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center has long been a family tradition and one that our kids look forward too. My attempt in painting the center was to capture a universal moment of hope that celebrates a holiday that New York is known for." Additionally, Kinkade will be sharing with guests the much-anticipated premiere image in the Timeless Disney Moments Collection: Snow White Discovers the Cottage.
Kinkade will also hand-sketch and sign the back of a Limited Edition canvas of Christmas Cottage that will be auctioned, all proceeds going directly to benefit the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church.
Many special edition and extremely rare Limited Edition canvases will be available at the event. Tickets may be obtained by contacting Rose City Galleries in Lake Oswego at 503-353-9623. Space is extremely limited - contact the gallery today for more information.
