My etsy accountThe Open Door Exhibit is a wonderful  event where a number of artists have created doors that they turned into art all in the name of education. These unique doors will be auctioned off and the proceeds will be given to the Lac Lawrann Conservancy and will benefit their year-round education center.

The door that I had made came about in a very odd way, as I had made it over a decade ago and was once in a doctor’s office. I had painted a wonderful fairy tail scene that was featured in the office’s children’s section.  After the door was painted children enjoyed their doctor visits far more & began creating their own artwork. All of the children’s drawings were taped up along it’s door frame for all to see.

About 4 years ago this joyful door took a sudden and lonely venture as the major shopping center in-which the doctor’s office resided in had relocated. Unfortunately the doctor too had to move to a separate location. There the door was left deserted for 4 years.

Though the doctor loved the door and was as silly as he was smart took it upon himself to write a note on the back of the door to ensure the special door that was once loved so much would never be destroyed.

Upon it’s back the doctor wrote. “This door is cursed! Who ever destroys this door shall meet a horrific and painful death! Please call this number if this door can be saved XXX-XXX-XXXX”

This past fall the doctor had gotten a call from some very scared and truly terrified demolition crew members. They were given the ok to spare the door (which often they need to scratch everything) and were even willing to deliver the door to him.

Now this door is a heavy metal door and he had no room in his home for it. He had called me & I had no room in my modest apartment nor in my 100 Sq Foot studio. Luckily the doctor’s wife heard of this event just a few days prior and they were able to set it up for this door to be donated.

Once again this happy door will help children in a different way, but will need your help.

If you know of someone or an organization that would love to have this happy door in their home or work place, please join us!

There is a meet & greet with the artist on Sunday Jan 6th, 2013 at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend, WI and then the Gala where there will be the auctioning off of the doors at Saturday, February 2, 6:00 p.m. at the West Bend Mutual Prairie Center, 1900 S. 18th St., West Bend.

I will be attending both events. Please share this story with others so that this door can find it’s happy home that it deserves!
