From Artist Jake Jacob

I received a letter from a painter who attended our January 31 meeting at Chen. I am passing this info along to anyone who may be interested:

My name is Jake Jacob. I am a painter who knows the difficulties that artists with mental health issues have trying to afford materials and space to practice their art. To help all of us I am seeking grants and private funding to provide us materials and studio space at little or no cost to the artists who work there.

Call Clubhouse of Lehigh County at 610-433-9910 and ask for me or Bob on weekdays 8:00AM-4pm. I am usually at Clubhouse during the day, and Bob is a staff member who is helping me with this project.

I wish him luck. Maybe there's something the group could do to bring light to this issue?

I hope there will be some space available at the 808 Hamilton building (cross your fingers) for Jake and fellow artists to work or exhibit.

Jake will be attending our next meeting, so if anyone can give him any info on obtaining grants, that would be helpful. I personally do not have any experience in that dept.! Thanks!
