Where is it hanging now? "Lupe Velez" is proudly displayed in my office at work as shown in the photo. While some visitors think her expression is similar to mine at times, this painting reminds me of my Grandma Louise and a photo of her before my wedding. I think the generational connection to the same era also speaks to me as well as the fact that Lupe and my grandmother were strong, trailblazing women paving the way for others.

What do you love about ArtSi and supporting HWNT-FW? ArtSi represents the culmination of a lot of talented HWNT members to produce a supportive community gathering of generous artists, businesses, and donors working together to invest in the future Latina leaders of our community. I've been a proud member of HWNT-FW since 2004 and look forward to building upon the organization's success as Chair in 2015 and 2016. HWNT-FW is community, sisterhood, mentorship, development, support, friendship, networking, opportunity and more wrapped up in a dynamic organization that is making an impact. 5) Any words of advice to new attendees/art buyers of ArtSi? Find something that speaks to you and bid like crazy to get it! Be sure to visit the handsome lead bartender, Chris Trevino. He'll help you loosen up those wallets and purse-strings for a good cause.
