For the Love of Art


Sunday is the last day that you can drop off your art piece for the Visual Art Exchange 26th Annual Art Auction & Gala, in Raleigh, NC.  Every year I say I am going to donate something and every year I let it slip by.  The VAE (www.visualartexchange.org) is great about sending out postcards and email reminders, but my mind is thinking February - not November.  I forget that there is so much preperation that goes into the Auction and Gala that they need plenty of time to get it together (excpecially over the holidays).   Since I will be working in the studio all weekend, I finally took my piece in today.  The majority of work that gets donated it 2d work - paintings mostly, so I am always glad to see when other 3d artist contribute.  I donated my ceramic piece "Generation".  It is a coil built ceramic piece that I stained with Iron oxide.  I then added a fish bone (that my daughter actually gave me for Christmas one year) and an old stamp that has our last name on it.  The wax flowing out of the piece is... well hopefully you can make the conection on your own.
