Artwork for "Art for Japan" Project at Gallery Nucleus

Gallery Nucleus is currently holding a charity project called "Art for Japan" - in which proceeds go to Give2Asia and Artists Help Japan, benefitting survivors & communities affected by the Japan earthquake and tsunami.  The project includes an online auction (4/20 - 4/24), fundraiser event at the gallery (this Saturday 4/23 from 6pm - 10pm), and buttons for sale (you can even create your own buttons at the fundraiser event).  Please click here for more information.

Below are my pieces that were donated for the online auction portion of the project.  The top piece was drawn specially for this event. The bottom two pieces were originally exhibited in the "Power in Numbers 4" show at Nucleus, and are available again to support this cause. All are framed & signed originals done in watercolor and pencil.

You can bid on the above pieces – as well as pieces by other fellow artists – here on Gallery Nucleus's website.  This online auction ends this Sunday (4/24) at 7pm.  Happy bidding & thanks for your interest and support!  And thanks to Gallery Nucleus & everyone involved for putting this project together in an effort to make a difference.
