I hope to influence people with my artwork similar to the way these two great organizations impact people everyday.
Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 18, 2007
Laurance Rassin, Internationally recognized contemporary expressionist painter today announced he will showcase his latest collection of oil paintings and ceramics at St. John Boutique in Palm Beach, Florida for its annual Spring Fashion Preview.
The January 19th event, sponsored in part by St. John Knits® and the Sullivan Drinkwater Wealth Management Group of H&R Block® Financial, will benefit Dress for Success of Palm Beach County - an international non-profit organization committed to helping disadvantaged women prepare for employment in today's competitive marketplace.
"I travel the globe in search of the most important twentieth century masterworks for my Paris gallery and it's rare that I get a chance to see emerging art, but when I do, I am constantly reminded of how little I care for it," said Laurent de Pass of Galerie Du XXe in Paris, France. "Yet, there is one American artist that I have met who breaks clean from this often banal scene - Laurance Rassin. His canvasses are the best combination of old and new school in a distinctive new wave of great contemporary expressionism."
"I'm honored to be able to showcase my artwork alongside St. John Knits' unique and fashionable clothing, all to benefit Dress for Success," said Laurance Rassin. "I hope to influence people with my artwork similar to the way these two great organizations impact people everyday."
Laurance Rassin and St. John Knits will donate a percentage of all sales to Dress for Success of Palm Beach County.
The event takes place on Friday, January 19, 2007 from 6:30PM to 8:30PM. St. John Boutique is located on 256 Worth Avenue in Palm Beach Florida.
