Fighting Charity Fatigue

Artists donate their art for charitable causes year round. Fund raisers get hot and heavy during the summer months when the population swells. By August the enthusiasm sometimes wanes. If you love art as I do and appreciate the thoughtfulness of the artist community, fund raisers are an opportunity to support a good cause and collect work by local artists. Due to charity fatigue there is an opportunity to pick up some beautiful art at a discount.  Often times you don't have to go to the actual charity event to participate. Many auctions are also online. It is an opportunity not to be missed. Here are just a few examples of work currently available. All are awaiting your bids.
