Supporting The Arts

PONCHO auction donation:
Dream of the Cynara Cardunculus 2009 - Encaustic w/ mixed media 24 x 24

This fall is the PONCHO Annual Invitational Fine Art Auction, Grow Art. It’s a big deal here in the Northwest and an honor to have my work included among the regions top talent. Last week was the preview party just for donating artists and it was held at the Western Bridge in Seattle. It’s a contemporary warehouse exhibition space designed by Roy McMakin and where you'll find the work of a few hundred artists on display salon style.

Public viewing hours: Thursday through Saturday, August 20-22, 12:00PM to 6:00PM. Please visit http://www.poncho.org/artauction.shtml for more information. The art will go up for auction at the gala event, Grow Art, Saturday, October 3, at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel.- for ticket information and a full list of contributing artists click here.

This piece was donated by Marita Dingus.
Her work is available at the Francine Seders Gallery.

If artists don’t step up and support the arts than who will? That’s the question I ask myself whenever I am invited to contribute to an arts related charity. While I can’t donate to them all I try to help whenever possible.
