In addition, the proceeds from any sales thru her web site (www.KayCarterPaints.com) during the same time period will be shared with the Peace & Justice Center.

I am pleased to offer these paintings as a fund raiser for the Peace & Justice Center.”
Feel free to stop by the Center any time the Center is open, look at the paintings, and consider supporting the Peace & Justice Center through a purchase.
