Artworks for the 2009 "Rive Gauche" fundraiser are currently on display in the F&M/Kline Galleries. This is a "silent auction" (bid sheets are posted next to each artwork) and you do not have to be present at the Gala on October 24th to be a winning bidder, but it sure would add to the excitement!
The image (above, right) is of a painting by Calvin Edward Ramsburg, who also happens to teach abstract painting classes at the Delaplaine. This piece titled "Coral Reef" (acrylic on Rives BFK paper, mounted on canvas) is one of the 53 fabulous pieces up for auction and on exhibit. A wide variety of media are represented, including acrylic, oil, and watercolor paintings, collage, pen and ink drawings, jewelry, sculpture, metal and wood furniture, and hand-dyed silk clothing.
Stop into the Delaplaine to see the exhibit and be tempted! You could be the winning bidder, and give a boost to the Delaplaine (which is a non-profit) and to contributing artists, as well. And what an extra special gift you would have to give to a loved-one or to yourself!
