Time for Change

Now that the election is behind us and hope is in the air. Time to look at the art world that is not part of the big money scene. Those of us that are suffering through the beginning of a very bad time for the arts in general. I have donated art to two auctions taking place this coming weekend. One is to benefit artists with life threatening illnesses (I do not include myself in this category since I am pretty healthy right now), and the other to a very special organization that will be fighting for its existence in the up and coming year, ProArts of Oakland. Check out the next two posts for details on both of these important events.
