For the past few months my husband and I have been planning the 12x12 Art Show and Silent Auction that will benefit the Newton Sister City Project. We have been working with an AMAZING team of artists, friends, and professors to make this charity art show a reality!
The Newton Sister City Project is near and dear to me because they helped me travel to Nicaragua to do service work when I was attending Lasell College. From the NSCP website, their mission is "to work alongside our Nicaraguan friends to improve education and healthcare, and to employ appropriate technology at the village level." The project helps fund educational advancement, clean water and cooking technologies, and helps students travel to this amazing country to learn, bond, and grow.
The 12x12 Art Show and Silent Auction will feature an amazing group of artists of all mediums. ALL pieces in the show are up for auction and ALL proceeds will go to the Newton Sister City Project. You can visit the art show site here: http://www.digitalfisch.com/12by12/12by12.html and the Newton Sister City Project site here: http://sanjuandelsursistercityproject.wordpress.com/about/
Here is a sneak peek of two of the pieces I will be putting in the show!
This first piece is "Hope Comes in Color" 12x12 Acrylic on wrapped canvas.
You can buy prints and accessories of "Hope Comes in Color" on my Society6 account! Follow this link http://society6.com/SeeMollyCreate/Hope-Comes-in-Color_Framed-Print#12=60&13=55
There are also several options for prints, framed prints, stationary cards, even Sweatshirts!
All proceeds from sales from the "Hope Comes in Color" Series will be donated to the Sister City Foundation!
This next piece is a 12x12 Oil on Canvas. The bird is a Blue-Grey Tanager that is found in Nicaragua.
This painting is still in progress and I am very excited about how it is coming along. *Look for an upcoming tutorial of this piece here on the blog!
Thank you for taking the time to read about this awesome Foundation and our upcoming Art Show!
