Message from the Artist: 

“What we do as artists is not an easy job. It’s truly a labor of love. So when you spend your time and money to support the arts, we appreciate it! There is no measure of thanks for your generosity. Without you and your passion for the arts, we could not continue to do the craft we enjoy and love so much. I can’t speak for others, but at Arthur L Dawson Studio and Contemporary Masters, Inc., your support is greatly appreciated. And we hope to always answer your generosity by continuing to create and provide high-quality collectible art we all can be proud of. Your support says how you feel about us; I just thought you should know how we feel about you!”
