For this Tuesday

There are some great works of art at some very low starting bids at the Habatat for Healing Auction to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

It all started online April 1st at 12:00 p.m. and runs through April 7th at 5:00 p.m. and you can view the artwork and bid now. Details here.

On Tuesday there is really going to be a great kick-off event. Besides Healthy Chocolate, Complementary Valet, Complementary Markers Mark Whiskey, and Wine by Delfosse Vineyard & Winery, they will have some really awesome silent auction art, other items and raffle prizes by Capital Grille, Sakura Steakhouse & Markers Mark among others, and the first 10 women through the door receive gift bags by Shea Terre Organics. Details here.

You can bid on my donation (see below) here.

Defense of the Ant Mountain
She just finished her MFA in the Hoffberger School of Painting at MICA in Baltimore. Her meticulous, miniature drawings and large scale paper installations depict dense worlds of mythological beasts. The often comedic characters explore the dynamics of a dysfunctional human society. Gallerists and collectors can contact her here.
