Local artist Raymond Ramos has accepted the commission for this initial anti-Black-Friday event! Now we just need to raise the rest of the funds to make this happen.
Community donations as of 1/19/23 - $73.26
We are gathering a fund to commission a piece of art crafted to honor the Helpers.
A wise man once taught me to keep an eye on the helpers. The ones out there showing up for the hard moments. We have a lot to be grateful for at Gemini's. This year we are focusing our gratitude on these special humans.
Gemini's will match the first $777 on this endeavor. Funds will be collected until a minimum of $500 is raised from the public for the commission. The artist this year is Raymond Ramos; the work will be a painting installed in or on Gemini's Eclectic Emporium.
We hope to do this every year going forward; instead of participating a nickel in Black Friday Madness we hope to make a substantial local art buy with energy raised.
