The “Fresh To Death” Art Show and Charity Auction opened last Saturday night down in San Diego at Rosewood, a sneaker/skate store and art gallery. I was lucky enough to display the three toy art figures that I created for the show alongside my good friend (and one of the hosts of the show) Gary Lockwood (aka Freehand Profit) and his finance, Betsy Van Deusen. The other artists included in the show were @marsartist, @romtheworld. and @cristobarart, and it was co-hosted by Sneaker Head Confessions. The turnout was great, with different folks coming through all night and was definitely a fun time. Coincidentally, my pieces, entitled “2 Feet Under” (differentiated by “brand” editions), complemented perfectly with Betsy’s amazing oil and watercolor paintings. In addition a toy drive was also held and those, plus the proceeds from the auction will go to the Boys and Girls Club of San Diego. Keep an eye out for the auction, since unfortunately, there are a few issues at hand. Check out the following statement from Gary:
12/16/2013: IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to eBay’s required shipping & handling turnaround the auctions must be held closer to the end of the show. This will also give time for the Boys and Girls Club of Greater San Diego to register with eBay’s Giving Works so that 100% of the proceeds goes directly to the charity. Thanks for your patience and understanding as we reconfigure the charity art auction.
Thanks to everyone that made it out the opening night. If you are in San Diego, the show runs through January, so be sure to stop by and check out all the art in person.
