Fall Newsletter- featuring Fabulous Fall Events!

-July 23 -September 9, 2014
I am honored to participate as a UT Southwestern Maternal Fetal Medicine ultrasound employee in the  On My Own Time art exhibition.
On My Own Time is the only annual art competition that features the artistic talents of business professionals throughout the region. Each summer, area companies hold in-house competitions, featuring employee art that was created outside of working hours. Winners are selected by arts experts who act as jurors. Business Council for the Arts then showcases 
the winners from each company in a regional celebration held annually 
at NorthPark Mall Center.
 September 14-28th, 2014..
The On My Own Time program enables North Texas professionals to share their talents in the literary and visual arts with their co-workers, and allows participating companies to successfully recognize and encourage creativity, stimulate dialogue, and build team spirit and morale.


I am pleased to announce that I am featured in the

Article: Carnivale, also known as Carnival or Mardi Gras, is celebrated in Italy 
and many places around the world 40 days before Easter, 
a final party before Ash Wednesday and the restrictions of Lent.
The Venice Carnival is now world famous-Being a pre-Lent festival means 
"farewell to meat" and is celebrated throughout Italy. 
It was first held in Venice, it was revived in 1979. 
With great success it is now a open air festival where people parade
 around Venice and St. Marcos Square and don masks and costumes.
