Nov. 5, 2008 - PRLog -- Turning Point Gallery welcomes an international success story to Chapel Hill Nov. 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Nov. 15 from 10 a.m. to noon, when artist Simon Bull visits to meet collectors and demonstrate his painting techniques.

Simon Bull will enhance the “Family Tree Edition” of “Morning Star,” a painting of a North Carolina dogwood tree, and personalize giclees with a small original on the reverse side. This limited edition giclee is an 18-by-12-inch gallery wrapped giclée that Bull will customize for each member of your family, creating an heirloom to be passed down through generations. Bull will also add a dedication to the back.
Make an appointment to sit with Simon as he paints for your family. Order “Morning Star” by calling (919) 967-0402.

Bull has also released six portraits of fury canine friends available as giclées on canvas in three sizes: 36-by-36 inches, 24-by-24 inches and 18-by-18 inches. Right now, for the first time in the United States, Turning Point Gallery is offering a special open edition 15-by-15-inch size of these portraits for $195.

During the Simon Bull event at Turning Point Gallery, visitors will also have an opportunity to contribute to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals by commissioning a Simon Bull portrait of their dog, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the SPCA. Portraits will be delivered to customers during the holiday season.

"We are thrilled that Simon Bull, an acclaimed international artist, is helping launch University Mall’s first annual ‘It's All About Giving day’ on Nov. 15," says Garry Meldrum of Turning Point Gallery.

Turning Point Gallery is also partnering with University Mall (http://universitymallnc.com) for the “All About Giving,” day as well as offering a special promotion with the Animal Protection Society of Orange County (http://animalprotectionsociety.org) recently renamed Paws4Ever.

Bull, who spent his childhood in European cultural centers, South American jungles and Southern China mountains, has become one of the world's most compelling living artists. Presidents, celebrities, museums and a growing number of private collectors all collect Bull’s work. He was the first to win the Fine Art Trade Guild Artist Print Award in 2000 and he was named the official artist for the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002. In early 2005, Bull was diagnosed and successfully treated for colorectal cancer and has used his talent to support various causes, including work with the American Cancer Society, Angels Among Us, the Ventana Wilderness Society and the Ronald McDonald House Charities, to name a few.
