A Reception of Gratitude Helping People Succeed honors the 2024 Art for Living Calendar Artists and Sponsors

Helping People Succeed’s Art for Living Calendar has been hanging on the walls of homes and offices since 1998.

Each year, 13 talented artists from our community are selected to showcase their work of art on each month of Helping People Succeed’s calendar. The artists’ original paintings reflect a picture representative of living here on the Treasure Coast.

On January 18 a special Reception of Gratitude took place at the Elliott Museum, at which the 2024 Art for Living Calendar artists and underwriters were honored, generously underwritten by Jeanine Webster & Mel Nobel.

Heidi Bosley, Chair of the Helping People Succeed Governing Board, welcomed the guests with a success story to depict the impact of their gifts. Glenna Parris, Gift Planning Officer, individually thanked each artist and underwriter and presented them with a unique glass blown heart. Claire Nash, Chair of the Foundation Board closed the evening by reading a poem that she had written paying tribute to the artists and supporters. Rob Steele – President of the Elliott Museum, was also thanked for generously accommodating the artwork. The event, catered by Philly Down South, was held on the second-floor gallery. There was a festive ambiance with a mood of gratitude.

The paintings will remain on display at the Elliott through April 1, 2024.
