A Unique Studio Party and  Benefit

Two Sunday Evenings: November 10th and 17th 2019
Two Unique Events

4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Storytelling Studio Walk-through
Capacity: 10 people

  • Learn the thought-provoking and inspiring stories behind my painting as we tour my home and art studio. During this time, I’ll share my unconventional un-artist-like history, my path to becoming a self-taught artist, my creative process and what inspires me as well as answer any questions you may have about this artist’s way of life.
  • Light appetizers, wine & non-alcoholic beverages provided.
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Intimate Party & Painting Demo

Capacity: 15 people
  • Relax and mingle with good company and other art lovers as you explore available paintings and jewelry for sale in my studio. During this time, I will demonstrate my personal techniques and strategies of my process as I work on a painting-in-progress.
  • A healthy array of appetizers, wine & non-alcoholic beverages provided.

Reserve your free tickets to attend 

You and your friends may attend both events but need to reserve tickets for each event separately.
Location details will be provided upon confirmation of your reservation.

Win a Private Party for Six People 

All attending guests will be entered into a drawing to win a Deluxe Make Jewelry from Watercolor Paintings Party for 6 that includes a full meal with wine and beverages. The date will be negotiated with the winner based on mutual availability and is good for the years 2019/20.  A $400 value.
Can’t attend? Make an online or in-studio purchase or donation at www.marikareinke.com/shop November 10th through the 17th 2019 to be entered in the drawing.

Committed to Making a Difference

25% of proceeds will be donated to the women’s empowerment and contraceptive efforts of CEPIA, a non-profit organization located in my temporary hometown of Guanacaste, Costa Rica.  This organization strives to serve the basic and educational needs of the most disenfranchised and impoverished people of the area.  I know the leadership personally, their passion and commitment to their community inspire all.

This is a FREE benefit event.  I suggest a direct donation to CEPIA, Costa Rica of $10 +  OR purchase gifts, art, and jewelry for a good cause. Your generosity is deeply appreciated.

Benefit Studio Party 2017

In 2017, Hurricane Nate and heavier than usual rains caused death and displaced many people in Costa Rica.  It was a hard rainy season for those most in need in our former community.  I dedicated 20%  of the proceeds to CEPIA Costa Rica for those most affected by flood damage and raised over $600.

Wonderland Set and purchased by La Paz Community School 2017

Parents and families of La Paz Community School in Costa Rica banned together and fundraised to buy the Wonderland Set I painted from Beachnuts Theater to place on their new Pre-K thru 2nd grade campus.  As a group, they successfully raised the funds and the little theater company that impacted my kids lives so profoundly received  $2000 to further its bootstrap program.
