Port Townsend gatheringplace Calendar

Each year about this time, the gatheringplace in Port Townsend publishes a wall calendar as one of its fund-raising activities. Artists from the area are invited to submit works for the project; this year's calendar features photography.

Here are a few words about this remarkable organization, taken from their website...
"gatheringplace, a privately funded nonprofit organization, provides enrichment activities for people with disabilities, encouraging each individual's creativity, independence, and self-expression. Our welcoming environment supports interaction and communication with our participants, community volunteers and staff. Engaged in art, crafts, music, fitness and exploring nature, we gain mutual understanding and appreciation, further enriching lives together."

The annual gatheringplace calendar is well supported in Port Townsend and the surrounding peninsula communities as well. I'm honored to have a couple photos included in the calendar this year from Port Townsend Daily Photo. It has been a pleasure to work with such great people.
