A Collaborative Art Piece


Kk v. Kk or Bromidic Perfunctory Feminism v. Ubiquitous Philosophical Equality fine art print by artists Preston Gravitt and Janet Antepara.

“Kick it in the Poochie” as we call it, is a collaborative effort between very different artistic styles based on the concept of “acception.” Depicted is Preston’s story of two art students and two art teachers. The first student was shown favoritism from one teacher despite her lack of skill by using the argument that feminine flaws are beautiful. The other more skilled student was given the respect of the other teacher for her beautifully feminine artwork. Preston used the experience with favoritism towards feminism and respect towards equality to promote an art piece to make a difference in the real world. Janet stylized the concept adding depth and detail.

40% of sales of the painting and merchandise for Kk v. Kk will be donated to Rose Haven.

Mother Maybelle Band CD Fundraiser

100% of the proceeds from their CDs are generously donated to Rose Haven to support our programs!

CDs are $15, to purchase a copy, email us at or join us at our Branching Out Event on Nov. 9th, 2023!

The Mother Maybelle Band is an all-acoustic project that came into being during the Covid shutdown. Members of the Reverb Brothers, as well as other musician friends, gathered weekly to trade off songs under the boughs of Mother Maybelle, the massive Maple Tree in Doug’s front yard. Eventually, they decided that this music should be preserved, so they started booking studio time once we could be together indoors again. About a year later, they’ve released a CD! Give them a follow on Instagram @reverb_brothers and @claes_almroth_trio

If Notes Greeting Cards

Fresh, authentic greeting cards written by real humans.

IF NOTES is offering two cards designed by artist Sherry Hastings and Sarah. Every sale of their cards donates $1.00 to Rose Haven.

IF NOTES take a new approach to greeting cards, reflecting the diverse perspectives of the human experience instead of copywriters drafting punchlines. All cards are crowdsourced from those who have lived experiences they are willing to share, benefiting a non-profit of their choice. Recipients feel a little less alone, and we all feel more connected to each other and the beauty of the human experience.

Card authors nominate a nonprofit to receive a percentage of sales from that card. Each card shares the contributor’s story, along with information about the non-profit it supports, spreading awareness and helping people connect with impactful organizations.

Sherry Hastings Parrot Tulip Card

Artist Sherry Hastings contributed this oil painting artwork for a card to benefit Rose Haven day shelter and community center. Sherry uses Floriology (the language of flowers) in her portraits. Her paintings are celebrations of the struggles and every day triumphs of women’s lives.

Sarah’s I Still Need You Card

This card’s message was contributed by Sarah who struggled with social anxiety and depression after COVID.
