SHOW SCHEDULE -
Von.G Art will do NO shows until further noted
Note to our valued customers:
Over the years Von.G Art has exhibited at many arts and crafts festivals throughout the Midwest. Megan (the artist) loves to exhibit at art shows and festivals because she enjoys seeing and visiting with her wonderful repeat customers, many of which she has developed friendships with over the years. Megan also completely enjoys meeting new people at the festivals. She finds it especially interesting to hear the stories that her artwork sparks as people view her designs. While participating in arts festivals, Megan has met countless, and maintains friendships with many, fellow artists.
But, 2017 is different.
Last year on September 30, 2016 while on our way to exhibit at the 2016 Red Barn Arts & Crafts Festival in Kirksville, Missouri, Megan became ill. We ended up at the emergency room of the Northeast Regional Medical Center on Friday night and were unable to set-up and exhibit on Saturday.
Three and a half months later, after seven subsequent ER visits, in mid-January of 2017 Megan was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. In late January she underwent surgery to remove the main tumor, a large portion of her colon, and the nearby affected lymph nodes. Megan then underwent two months of chemotherapy. In mid-May of 2017, Megan had a second surgery to remove five tumors in her liver. She completed another four months of chemotherapy in mid-September of 2017.
The good news is that Megan is doing quite well and is currently considered to be cancer free. That is a HUGE "woot-woot"! The bad news is the chemotherapy infusions have had some significant side effects including extreme fatigue. Her hands also tend to shake which has limited Megan's ability to draw. She loves to participate in the art shows but has had to cancel all shows for 2017. Please know that she intends to "be back next year" for all of the shows she dearly loves to participate in.
Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
