Robert Dash: Printmaker
Robert Dash: Printmaker, a special selection of original lithographs and serigraphs by Robert Dash, will be on view in the summer studio by appointment only, through October. Prints are available for sale here at Madoo Conservancy.
Another mild winter, and I’m not complaining. Coming off a busy holiday season and a successful Annual Appeal campaign (thank you to everyone who donated!), it’s nice to get into the garden and see which plants are stirring to life.
- Pause At Home
We’ve begun the first phase of digitizing the Robert Dash archives as Madoo has been accepted into the Digitizing Local History Sources Project with LIU Post’s Palmer School of Library and Information Science, funded by the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation. This important step in preserving Dash’s illustrated journals, early exhibition announcements, photographs, and studio ephemera, will allow for future generations to view and reference Madoo’s archives.
New Ways to Give
We’ve grown up! The IRS has determined that we are now a public charity! Although we’ve been a 501(c)3 for twenty-five years, this new status allows us to receive gifts from grant-giving foundations that can only give to public charities, as well as a .05% every time you shop on Amazon Smile (of course we prefer you shop local) and select Madoo Conservancy as your charity of choice. Thank you for the many ways you give to Madoo!

Did You Know?
Now’s the time to plant spring blooming bulbs and and what fairer flower than the tulip is there? But try planting Species Tulips, a special class of tulip that have not been over-bred. They are the type found in Ottoman paintings and were probably around at the time of the tulip bubble in 1637. Try T. Clusiana (above), with its pretty candy cane coloring or T. Acuminata that has thin petals in orange and red making it look like a flame. Plus they tend to last for years.
