This fun postcard-sized piece, “Pert Little Peplums” is off to Australia for the Twitter Art Exhibit (TAE-18).
My colorful, handpainted abstract is the background for a vintage map of Australia and a vintage catalog gal.
For the past eight years, TwitterArtExhibit has utilized social media and public engagement to generate income for charities and nonprofit organizations. In the past, #TwitterArtExhibit has generated funds for a library suffering from deep funding cuts to purchase much-needed children’s books, for an abused women’s shelter seeking to improve the lives of the families they serve, and for an arts organization mentoring underprivileged young adults in preparation for careers in the visual arts.
- Artists worldwide donate postcard-sized, handmade original artwork to the TAE
- TwitterArtExhibit organizes a local, physical showcasing of the art.
- The public is invited to buy the art at an affordable, flat price.
- 100% of proceeds go to the charity.
This year, TAE will be at Strathnairn Arts Gallery in Canberra, Australia, and postcards will be sold benefitting Pegasus Riding For The Disabled of ACT Inc. The curator this year is Kylie Fogarty and the show runs April 5-29, 2018. So, if you’re down under, go see my work and help out a good cause!
