More artwork for Katrina (and/or Rita) Relief

Some more of our gallery artists have made available art to be auctioned off for hurricane Katrina and Rita relief causes. All net proceeds will be donated to the Southern Arts Federation.

The Southern Arts Federation has established an Emergency Relief Fund to assist arts organizations and artists residing in Gulf Coast communities most devastated by Hurricane Katrina, and now I suppose also Rita.

We have the art online here, and it includes work by Vladimir Pcholkin, Jacqueline Saunders, Camille Mosley-Pasley, and myself. See all four here.

bid for Frida and Elvis
F. Lennox Campello "Frida Wearing an Elvis T-Shirt"
Bid here.

My Frida Wearing an Elvis T-Shirt is a silly pen and ink wash drawing that I did in 1978 on the first anniversary of the King's death. In it I married two of my icons: Kahlo and Elvis, and had Frida wearing an Elvis T-shirt under her rebozo. Sacrilege or what?

Wanna go to an Opening Tonite?

DC area artist Diane Bugash's work is one of the sort of art that can be spotted in a group show right away. And not only because Diane is an exceptional painter, but also because she will not paint on a "normal" or ordinary canvas.

Bugash shapes her canvas until they become an integral and intelligent part of her painting. All shapes and sizes...

And Bugash has an opening tonight in Baltimore's Light Street Gallery, located at 1448 Light Street, Baltimore, MD 21230, 410-234-0047 and website here. The opening is from 5-9PM, and the show runs until October 15.

See ya there!
