|Secrets & Lies - mixed media|
The Pulse Charity Auction for Hurricane Sandy Relief is still going strong! As of 7pm (EST) tonight the 10 fabulous bundles of original art, art books (some signed), online workshops & other creative goodies has brought in over $2200.00 to help folks affected by that terrible storm!
There is still time for you to get in on the action! Bidding continues until Sunday 11/11 at 11:59 pm (EST). As of this post, high bids for each bundle range between $65 - $375. This is a great chance to take home a wide variety or artsy goodness... while helping people in need. All proceeds of the auction will go to The Mayors Fund To Advance New York.
I've donated this set of mixed media masks, originally made for the Poisoned Apples (Snow White themed) show last June. They are made of Papier-mâché, thread-inclusive papers, Polaroid Emulsion transfers, ribbons and paint. They are included in Bundle #10, along with wonderful pieces by talented artists Sharon Payne Bolton, Katheryn Dyche Dechairo, Seth Apter ... plus a signed copy of Seth's latest book The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists.
Each also holds a secret inside.
Somewhat fragile, these life size masks are mainly decorative. They could be displayed on the wall, or even in front of a mirror.... if you want to give the world a glimpse of what is going on inside.
C'mon - click here to check out all of the fun stuff up for auction. (By the way, the 2 drawings I contributed are in Bundle #7). There are great photos of the goodies plus links to the artists & authors who created them. And, who knows, you may even find a few things that want to come home with you.
