Red Cross Art Show Features Two betterArts Residents

The American Red Cross of Northern New York held its Sixth Annual Art Show and Sale March 4 at Trinity Church in Watertown, N.Y.

Presenting at the show were betterArts' own artist residents Jennifer Elizabeth Crone and Mike Brown. Artists whose pieces were purchased donated 20, 50, 75, or 100 percent of proceeds to the American Red Cross. Dollars raised help support the Red Cross as it continues assisting families in need in all of Northern New York. Check out the event pics featuring some of our own!
