The first annual Hope Lives: Art for ALS exhibition was in May 2022. Curating this show was my way of doing something meaningful for my sister, who was diagnosed with ALS in July of 2020. This exhibition is an effort to raise awareness, which, in turn, helps fund research to more effectively diagnose, treat, manage, and prevent ALS.


We had an amazing time during this month-long educational art exhibition at the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery. Events included an art reception, wine tasting with Corner 103 wines, artists talk and a live and virtual ALS education day, with my sister, Lynn, as the guest of honor.

We donated a total of $1,842 to the ALS Association Golden West Chapter and $150 to the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery.

Thank you, for your support and participation. I am currently planning Hope Lives: Art for ALS for May 2023.

Although the in-person exhibition came down on May 27th, 2022, you can still buy artwork featured on the Hope Lives Instagram site and contribute to the ALS Association Golden West Chapter. I'm looking forward to curating another exhibition in May 2023, so stay tuned!

The virtual Collaborative Mandala Art Project associated with the 2022 show has ended, but the originals that you've shared will be used to create artwork for the Golden West Chapter’s Champions for Cures and Care Celebration! !

Thank you for your interest in learning more about ALS and how you can help find a cure.

Learn about how Hope Lives: Art for ALS came to be in this interview with Allison Johnston (aka - Fuzzy Grapefruit on Instagram) and me in an interview on April 30, 2022.


The topic was "How to Organize an Event for a Cause with an Artistic Lens." Where do you start? How do you find support? And why is it so important to schedule days off?
