All works will be available for purchase via proxy or at the SELECT 2014 gala on March 22, 2014.  Proceeds from the sale of artwork are shared equally between WPA and the artist and support WPA's free exhibitions, programs, and support services for artists year round.
I did a drawing of Marianne Boesky when I was in art school... or somewhere along my artistic timeline, as she is a very impressive-looking person.... I should try to find it and send it to her.... cough, cough...

I expect that Alessandra Torres, who is (in my opinion) the most brilliant "undiscovered" artist in the Mid Atlantic, will steal this show....
