The Wallflower Gallery Needs Your Help

I received this email today from Flash at The Wallflower Gallery:
The Wallflower Gallery has run out of money and is on the verge of closing.
After over 10 years of supporting independent artists, The Wallflower Gallery was voted ‘BEST GALLERY’ (runner up) in Miami Herald’s Readers Poll 2007. In addition, I personally, was honored by the Miami New Times 2007 Best Of Edition and awarded "Best Activist" for my efforts and the community programs at The Wallflower Gallery. Despite these accomplishments, the gallery is in financial crisis, due largely to recent renovations and operational costs. Being an all-ages venue, our profits are not made through bar sales, which makes it all the more important for us to raise money through the support of its patrons. The Wallflower Gallery has always provided quality entertainment at a low cost (or even free!), so that everyone could appreciate the "Local Art Experience". The Wallflower Gallery has stood as a beacon for creativity and original, artistic expression, which is much needed in our world of complacent living. For those who have experienced "The Wallflower Effect", you are well aware that you’ve encountered something quite out-of-the-ordinary, and hopefully you have connected with the feeling of belonging with a sense of Family.

In order to keep this dream alive for us all, and for us to continue The Wallflower Gallery’s community efforts, I am asking YOU today to SEND A DONATION. Any amount is helpful and greatly appreciated! Payments can be made through the website, by mail or by person. Corporate donations are also needed.
Other ways to contribute and keep The Wallflower Gallery operational:
  • Volunteer!! When you look at our calendar, you can see the wide array of creative programs that we offer. Most activities are run by myself and a few loyal volunteers - and as such, I rarely sleep...
  • Come BUY and support your local artists and musicians!
  • Take advantage of our rental program for your next private or corporate event. This is a GREAT place to host a party or funktion!
  • Call and ask what YOU can do!

Let’s PULL TOGETHER and keep The Wallflower blooming! Donations can be made through our PayPal account. You can go to our website at or check out our MySpace page at Checks made out to The Wallflower Gallery can be sent to 10 N.E. 3rd Street Downtown Miami, FL 33132. People can come by The Wallflower Gallery to donate. We’d love to see you!

Thank you, Friends, for your continuing support! Together we can make a difference. Please forward this to friends and "Show Some Love".
