Word Wall/Words of Rage in On-line Auction

Word Wall/Words of Rage in On-line Auction for Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art

The 2016 auction for “WORD: Words in Art / Art in Words” is now live and accepting bids! And my piece is part of it!!
“We are proud to offer this select group of extraordinary art works from our current exhibition at HVCCA.

These exceptional works are sourced from HVCCA’s first ever juried exhibition, “WORD: Word in Art / Art in Word,” an exploration of the diverse use of written text through different media. While also featuring iconic works by celebrated artists like Anne Hamilton and Oscar Murillo, “WORD” also presents uncharted talents within the Hudson Valley Region. Out of 140 applications, our jury worked painstakingly to identify those artists whose works showed not only immense intellectual and creative rigor, but also the potential to grow beyond their current success. Several of these artists works will be offered at auction for the first time, making this a unique opportunity to own exceptional work created by promising artists at the start of their careers.

40% of sales go to the support of the HVCCA, a 501­C­3 not for profit institution, to directly support public programming and making contemporary art accessible to all. This amount is tax deductible.

The auction will run from
July 20, 2016 to
December 17, 2016.

Available works can be viewed and purchased on the  Bidding For Good page.

We are so excited to offer this opportunity to take home a piece of “WORD” and support the continued success of HVCCA.

We at HVCCA believe that contemporary art has the power to bridge diverse cultures and incite positive change within our communities.Your contribution tells artists that their work is needed and their talents recognized. It allows us to expand and improve our future exhibitions, artist residencies, education programs, and community outreach projects.” Livia Straus, Director of HVCCA.

Please help support HVCCA, an organization that I am proud to be part of!
