We would like to thank you for your support in "Wish You Were Here 13". Okada's piece was sold and displayed among the works of hundreds of national and international artists whose cards ranged widely in style, media, and themes. The sale of our work benefits the A.I.R. Fellowship Program for Emerging and Underrepresented Artists and other programs that serve our mission to advance the status of women in the arts.
Thank you again for your support and Have a wonderful summer!
