SHOW SCHEDULE -
Von.G Art has suspended our show schedule
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) has always loved to participate in art art shows and festivals as she sincerely enjoys visiting with her customers, many with whom she has developed lasting friendships, while also meeting new people and other artists. Megan finds it especially interesting to hear the stories that her artwork sparks as people view her designs.
2017 was different.
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 2017 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 had some significant side effects including extreme fatigue and shaking in her hands. That limited Megan's ability to draw. While doing well, she does still deal with some side effects in her hands.
For now, Megan will not commit to art shows and festivals for the forseeable future.
You can, however, find her artwork for sale in Handmade department of Amazon.com by searching on Von.G Art.
