WomenSafe unveils its Mother’s Day card

ADDISON COUNTY — WomenSafe has unveiled its 2018 Mother’s Day card — the 17th in its annual Local Women Artists Series. Addison County artist Carol Calhoun’s lush painting, titled “Affordable Housing,” graces the front of the card this year.
When asked how long she has lived in Weybridge, Calhoun answered “not long enough!” Her paintings, reflecting her life-long love affair with the Champlain Valley, are exhibited in numerous galleries, other public venues, and in many private collections. However, nowhere are they more pleased and proud to be than on the cover of the 2018 WomenSafe Mother’s Day card.
The underlying theme of this otherwise lighthearted painting, and its playful title, is the critical issue of affordable housing in Vermont. With this painting, Carol expresses her vital awareness and concern for how this phenomenon makes an impact, especially on the lives of vulnerable community members. 
Everyone is invited to honor their mother, or any special person in their life, who has offered the gift of love to them and those for whom they care, by presenting them with this Mother’s Day card. In doing so, you are helping people who may not be safe this Mother’s Day. WomenSafe provides a shelter and services to people in Addison County and Rochester who have suffered domestic violence, particularly women and children.
To support the organization by purchasing Calhoun’s Mother’s Day care, send a donation to WomenSafe at P.O. Box 67, Middlebury, VT 05753, along with the name(s) and address(es) of your chosen honoree(s). WomenSafe will acknowledge your gift by sending your honoree(s) this heartfelt card. 
In addition, with each donation of $100 made during our Mother’s Day fundraiser, the person donating will be entered to win this year’s painting that Carol Calhoun donated to WomenSafe.
