Auction to Benefit Oaxaca Street Children
The time to bid is coming soon for this heartfelt auction to benefit the street children of Oaxaca. ON March 1st bidding starts....go to Rebecca's blog to see all the wonderful shrines made by 80 plus artists and show your support by placing your bid all through the month of March! On the front main page of her blog, you'll see a picture of a young girl and on top it says "cigar box shrine gallery". I was recently informed by the lovely Rebecca that myself and 26 other artists' shrines for this particular auction have been chosen to be featured in the March issue of Pasticcio Quartz! Pasticcio Quartz is a quarterly zine published by Sarah Fishburn and Angela Cartwright. From what I can tell on their blog, it looks like a pretty amazing piece of eyecandy! Sarah and Angela are well known in the mixed media art community and they have a couple of awesome books too!
The pictures of my shrine (above) aren't the best. I was pressed for time to send it out and took crappy pics. It is SUPER, DUPER shiney...the arabesque archway design is completly covered with a mosaic of glitter. Rebecca has better pics~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Go HERE to see:
Mine is toward the bottom.
