2nd FRIDAY IN CARRBORO, PERU PROJECT auction
Mexican Proverb by Jude Lobe Click image to go to Online Auction
Kyla McConnell, inspired to build a library for the poor, gave up a senior trip last year to Paris to visit the small village of Huaripampa, Peru, in the remote Andes Mountains. She and her mother, Renata, formed a nonprofit organization in Chapel Hill called The Peru Project, to fund the construction of the library and art center for Huaripampa.
Several artists, I included, have donated works to be auctioned off at the Peru Project silent art auction event, Friday, Sept. 10 from 6 to 9 p.m., at Fleet Street Gallery in Carrboro.
My painting above, "Mexican Proverb - A house does not rest upon the ground, but upon a woman", will be in the auction. It is 16X20X1.5 acrylic on linen in black wood floater frame.
My friend, and one of the co-owners of the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts, Peg Bachenheimer, has also donated a work.
PS: Unfortunately, there have been some problems with the Online Auction on Idonatetocharity.org. Try back later if you can't connect. But, by all means, come to the Friday night event.
