Beneath The Surface catalog donated to Virginia Spiegel's fundraising event

Beneath The Surface artist Virginia Spiegel is known for many things, among them her wonderful art and her generous heart!
Each year in honor of her birthday Virginia offers a number of items in a drawing to benefit the American Cancer Society. (You may remember the enormous amount of money she raised by spearheading Fiberart For A Cause).
Dinner At Eight Artists are donating a Beneath The Surface exhibition catalog for the event. This is a unique art book specifically about the exhibit, "Beneath The Surface" complete with art quilt photographs and insights into all 37 artists.
Be sure to check out our exhibition next month at the International Quilt Festival in Houston TX between 11/3 and 11/7/10 at the George R Brown Convention Center. The exhibition book was compiled by artist-participant Loris Bogue.
