A night to meet artists, collectors of art, and patrons
in a delightfully relaxed atmosphere.

Please accept this invitation to the Foundation’s SALON
from eight until eleven o’clock. 

Drinks & light repast.


      This is a great opportunity to see a remarkable collection in the home of one of our foremost members. It is a wonderful space for the artwork, but we must limit the number of those attending so we encourage you to send in your RSVP to SHARP as soon as possible.
      Everyone will enjoy seeing the first erotic piece you ever sold or the first erotic piece you ever purchased – so prepare to share!


      If you are an artist who has yet to sell an erotic work, someone will be there to discuss our Emerging Erotic Artist Contest with you.
      This will also be a chance to meet those who will be presenting the Foundation’s new series of Drawing Workshops.


      This is an exciting evening and a popular event – so please let us hear from you quickly. Let us know if you are an artist, and if you will be bringing anyone with you.


Donations (tax deductible): 

Members $ 15.00 -- Non-Members $ 20.00  

Artist Members $10.00 -- Artist Non-Members $15.00 

All are encouraged to bring a friend with them and include their name in their RSVP

To call the male nudes and portraits of Françoise Nielly bold and vibrant is an understatement; they positively explode off the canvas!



      This is issue #5, and we've been adding more and more information in each issue -- while still trying to keep it appropriately small for e-mail. We now usually include a notice of each event we post on our Events Page, as well as include new artists we've added to our Artists Links Page. There's no need to comb the site for new additions in those areas.

      Of course, part of this newsletter's mission is to promote Foundation events and fundraising activities. Without the generous support of art lovers like yourself, there wouldn't be a Foundation!

      Now that we have a few issues under our belt, we would appreciate some feedback from our readers -- what you like or don't like about the Dispatch E-news, and suggestions for improvement. We also welcome your comments on our website. We hope to make it as effective and enjoyable as we can.

     So send us your orchids ands onions! Click HERE to send us your opinions! Or write to: Webmaster@TomOfFinlandFoundation.org
