Helyn Davenport, founder and general manager of PixiPort Productions, has been working on assembling this show for several years. Said Davenport, "It finally came together this year when we struck an agreement with Gold Leaf Gallery to serve as the show's venue. The response from the artists has just been fabulous. We have even been told that there are media representatives from Europe planning on covering the event." Many of the artists invited to participate in the show are featured on www.pixiport.com.

Gold Leaf Gallery & Framing will be the exclusive venue for the opening and the show during it's run and may continue to represent some of the artists on a continuing basis after the show closes.
