About this project

PETALS to HAWAII
Hey you! So here's the deal: I just got accepted into my first art gallery to exhibit my Petals series (http://www.ceceliawebber.com/), which is a series of flowers made out of photographs of the human body! The only catch is, it's in Hawaii, and I'm not in Hawaii, and so I turn to you to enable me to print, frame, and ship my art all the way to that little island. Not only do you get the satisfaction and good karma of empowering a new artist to get her work out there to the far reaches of the world, what's more is that you can also get a signed print of my art (or a variety of other cool things) as a token of my endless gratitude!

In the meantime, I'm continuing to make more flowers (as well as other mysterious things...shhhhh don't tell!! Nobody knows yet :)

If I can raise more than the threshold I've set here, which just covers the cost of printing, shipping, and framing, I'll be able to ship MYSELF over to the gallery and be at the opening in person! That would be a dream come true.

To see what flowers you can choose from and what I've already made, check out my website at: http://www.ceceliawebber.com. You can also follow my journey to Hawaii and beyond (other galleries are in the works!):

Check back for ongoing updates as I find out more!

Also, I am definitely open to requests of other types of rewards for pledges, so if you've got ideas, let me know in the Comments section. If you can't tell by my art, I'm pretty open minded :)!

Thank you so much for joining me on this journey,
Cecelia
