Famed British Musician Hosts Successful Art Events to
Benefit Camp Good Days & Special Times; The
American Cancer Society and The Child Advocacy
Center of Philadelphia .
Carl Palmer, one of rock’s iconic figures, and a founding member of both Emerson Lake & Palmer and ASIA, in association with Los Angeles art company Scene Four, recently completed a three day run of successful art exhibits in Rochester, NY; Bath, PA; and Philadelphia PA, May 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, respectively. The events resulted in the sales of 23 original Palmer canvases, whose proceeds will be distributed to three very worth causes that Palmer is supporting: Camp Good Days & Special Times ( a summer camp for children with cancer); The American Cancer Society; and The Child Advocacy Center of Philadelphia, which aids abused children in the Philly area.
“ Fortunately, I have created a style of art that many people seem to enjoy and want to
have in their homes. The fact that I can donate a substantial share of the proceeds to help these great charity organizations makes this endeavor even more fulfilling.” says Palmer. “ It is my intention to continue with these charity driven art events until both my art collections have sold out. I can’t think of a better way to share my art with the public.”
The Camp Good Days event was held at its annual fund raising gala; while the event
benefiting the American Cancer society was held at Friendship Framing & Art Gallery
in Bath, near Bethlehem, PA. The event for The Child Advocacy Center was held at
Philadelphia’s Ritz Carlton Towers, and hosted by Paul Conaway of Wanatix
Entertainment. It was attended by former District Attorney and current Philadelphia
mayoral candidate Lynne Abraham, a major supporter of the Advocacy center in
