I am greatly honored to be asked to contribute art to Virginia Spiegel's FiberArt For A Cause fundraiser. It is a fabulous Invitational Reverse Auction of Fabulous Fiberart! How's that for a mouthful?
Seriously it is wonderful selfless fundraiser that Virginia and her sister dedicate themselves to, and all for an excellent cause - American Cancer Society. Many wonderful artists are donating art to this cause and 100% of the monies goes directly to ACS. The auction will take place in March 2009 and I promise to give you all the details once I have them. The contributing artists are:
Linda Teddlie Minton
Judy Coates Perez
Meanwhile, all you artists out there do consider another fundraiser that Virginia is doing - Collage Mania. Artists are invited to donate a collage that will be auctioned off in May. A wonderful opportunity to donate and/or purchase some affordable artwork and contribute to a worthy cause. That is what the three collages in this post are all about. They are Питерские Окна/Piterskie Okna/St. Pete Windows 7, 8 and 9. Dryer sheets printed with images of windows that I took in St. Petersburg, Russia this summer, layered on hand painted cotton and mustard colored wool, free-hand machine embroidered, painted with oil sticks and hand stitched. Each measuring 9 1/2" x 6 3/4" mounted on 10"x8" mat board, and ready for framing.
