As many of you know, Japan has been hit with a major crisis due to the 8.9 earthquake and tsunami that followed after. Thousands are without food and water...homes..loved ones. I am asking for your help, if you can, donate paintings or illustrations that can be sold in a gallery (TBA). 100% of funds will go to the tsunami relief for Japan. Pls respond if you can and are willing to help me. Paintings and Illustration would be that of Japan (anything about the culture, beauty, people etc)...Let me know!!! I will be asking friends with galleries to help showcase a fundraising show when possible...I'll keep everyone updated
HEY EVERYONE GREAT NEWS!!! I just recieved an email from Ben Zhu of gallery nucleus and said they were very inspired by the enthusiasm of artists wanting to help Japan that WE WILL BE FOR SURE HAVING A FUNDRAISING EVENT!!!!!!! There is a total of TWENTY ARTISTS NOW, who are willing and wanting to help with this event. Although there is no specific date yet, I WILL be talking with Ben Zhu tomorrow morning about it over the phone. He said this will be more than just an art show. SO HOLD YOUR PENCILS AND PAINT BRUSHES UNTIL TOMORROW. I'm going to see what BEN says. BUT YES WE HAVE A VENUE FOR SURE!!! I am very EXCITED that all of you and so many others are helping out!!!! THANK YOU!!
