SLAC live art auction

Last month, I participated in a live art event at Paul Henry's Art Gallery in Hammond. All of the work created during the event is being silent auctioned and a portion of the proceeds is being donated to the National Autism Association of Northwest Indiana. This organization helps a lot of families in the area and even provides grants to help offset the high medical costs associated with caring for a child with autism. I donated to them in April's 10% for autism. I promised a recap with all the artists' work, but another group member has done me one better and actually posted the silent auction online! Bids for last year's auction had to be done in person in the gallery, but now anyone can bid anywhere!

I have 9 one of a kind collagraph prints in this auction, and so far only one has a bid. Starting bids on my work are $20-35. This is an excellent opportunity to pick up some artwork, potentially below market value, and support a great cause.

100% of the sales from the collaborative piece will be donated. I will be donating 50% of the sales. Other artists are donating at least 10%. Included in the auction is artwork by: Paul Benninghoff, Gary L. Price, Chris Guzman, Al Castor, and Leslie Lambert. More artists may be added. The auction continues through the first week of January.
