Susan Valentine exhibit notes

Susan Valentine is holding a gallery exhibit and open studio hours at the Leverett Crafts and Art Center, 13 Montague Road, Leverett Center, from noon to 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday. This started June 19 and runs through July 3, with a “Windup Shindig” open house on Thursday, July 3, 5 to 8 p.m.

She is also running a raffle called “Art, for Pete’s Sake!” to raise money for her cousin, Peter Rizzo. Rizzo has inoperable liver cancer and has been told by doctors that he has only four or five months left to live, Valentine writes on the fundraising site, YouCaring.com.

“I’d like to help him and his family be a little less stretched with medical expenses or maybe have an adventure in what precious time they’ve got left as a family intact,” Valentine writes.

The raffle winner will choose one of five paintings that can be seen on Valentine’s Facebook page or on the fundraising site. A second prize winner will receive a framed, archival print. Raffle tickets can be purchased from Valentine, on her Facebook page and on the fundraising site www.youcaring.com. Here is a link to her page: http://tinyurl.com/mz7os87
