Art for three good causes!

to go directly to this item click here!
This is an art quilt that I did a while ago. It was done after watching a home burn to the ground. Some of the remnants of the home are included in the quilt itself, as are photo images of the aftermath.

This is now being offered for sale in charity benefit Auction at MIT in Boston. The opening bid is $200 and I really hope that it sells, so the charities will benefit from my donation. The three charities are Troubadour, Children's Glaucoma Foundation, and Humanity in Action. to find out more about these charities, click here.

There is an on-line auction, followed by a live auction on Thursday night. You can see more (or bid!!) here:

Also included in the auction is this wood engraving by Ray Gloeckler. Ray was a professor of Art and the University of Wisconsin, and other institutions, for many years. His are is focused on a satiricaal look at current issues, and uses the wood engraving style. Ray is one of the premiere artisans of this media in the world.

If you are in or know anyone in the Boston Area, please pass the work about Thursday night! And about the on-line auction as well.
