Family, Friends, All,

For the past four years, I've attended Utah Valley University and pursued an undergraduate degree in Photography. I am only weeks away from finalizing all my graduation requirements, and will receive my diploma during commencement this spring. 

In 2013 I started a Senior project as a capstone to my Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree. For this project I've been interviewing and photographing women in my life who have inspired me, and who I look to for advice, strength, encouragement, etc.

To display the portrait images of 12 of these wonderful women, I have reserved a venue at the Orem City Center Rotunda. The entire exhibit will be available for public viewing during the month of February. My official artist reception and opening will be on Friday, February 7th, from 6:00 to 8:30 PM.

For the medium on which to print and frame these portraits, I have chosen a beautiful, antique process from the mid-1800s called albumen. This process uses albumen, found in egg whites, to bind the photographic chemicals (a combination of silver nitrate, sodium chloride, gold chloride, sodium thiosulfate and a few others) to the paper.

I am currently trying to raise funds to help offset the costs of the print chemicals, paper and mat board, frames and hangers, venue planning, etc. My original goal was to raise $2,200.00 by January 31, 2014. We already have almost $600 in just 2 days! Apparently the PayPal link did not work for some of you, so we are now on FundRazr too, with a revised goal of $1,600.00. All of the money raised will go towards making this show and this project the best it can possibly be, as a tribute and showcase of these amazing women and a display of my developing talents as a lifelong artist.

Personal checks and cash donations are welcome of course, but the best way to get the word out is through the internet. If you feel like giving to this project, please share this secure FundRazr link. All contributions (no matter how small) will be recognized at the opening of my show! 

Thank you all so much for your contribution and for your support - I could not have gotten here without so many of you!!! 

Also, please forward this email to anyone you know who has an appreciation for photography, the arts, or who you think would like to see this project succeed.

-Sarah
