As some of you may know, if you follow me on Facebook as well (if you don't and want to, it's right here), I have been working on a couple of pieces for donation to Project Art Aid, an effort by the American Cancer Society to raise money for breast cancer research here in Charlotte.
I am contributing two pieces. The first, pictured below, is a small 6 x 6 painting that will be hung at Presbyterian here in town in a large mosiac with ninety-nine other pieces. All of the painting combined should illustrate a large heart.
I am also donating a slightly larger piece (12 x 12 inches) that will be available for purchase at a silent auction which will be held on June 17th at Wachovia Atrium from 6 to 9 pm. The bidding for any painting starts at fifty dollars and tickets to the event are fifteen dollars. During the auction, the mosaic of one hundred paintings (One Heart One Hundred Artists) will also be unveiled. If you are interested in a chance to bid on some beautiful artwork by a massive collection of local artists while doing some good, go to Project Art Aid's website right here to purchase tickets and see a few of the works that will be on display.
