Just a reminder to visit the Prints 4 Non-Profits site for a weekly selection of 11×14 prints up for bid. All profits from sales are donated to a different local charity and bidding starts at just $5! Bids placed by midnight tomorrow (5/1/10) will help Noble of Indiana and, starting on Monday (5/3/10), the profits for May will go to Best Buddies, Indiana. Details on both these charities, as well as directions for bidding, can both be viewed at Prints 4 Non-Profits. Start or expand your art collection will you help a great cause!
The “Art of Friendship” event for Best Buddies Indiana was held on Thursday, October 2nd at the Marvis Arts & Events Center. As I mentioned in a previous post my buddy for this year, Carl, and I worked together to create a mixed media piece that Carl named “Red Masterpiece”. Here is an image of the finished piece:
In addition to a silent auction of some wonderful items that were donated to the event, all the artwork that the buddy pairs create is auctioned off at a live auction during the event. The winning bid on our piece raised $400 for Best Buddies! For more information about this wonderful program please visit their website at Best Buddies Indiana.
