In September, 2007, Hollace’s paintings were featured at the Fall exhibition at the Ritz Carlton Gallery, Grand Cayman. All four of Hollace’s paintings were sold at this event. The shops at the Ritz continue to carry Hollace’s prints and sets of note cards.
Hollace admired her mentor’s masterpiece, which required three months to complete, as well as Ron’s tireless devotion to preserving the environment and to educating through his own generosity on the need to get involved to make a difference.
During her stay on Grand Cayman this summer (2007), Hollace acted as assistant to Ron Steven in teaching local children and teens the craft of aboriginal dot art. Each student was challenged to create an original blue iguana painting. These paintings were individually auctioned at the Blue Iguana Affair, both raising funds for the Programme, as well as instilling pride in the students by their contributions to this event.
