Deadlines ... what would we do without them? I just finished sending in images of my 5 fiber art collages for the One Cause, One Wednesday, One Hundred Collages fundraiser, created and organized by Virginia Spiegel and Karen Stiehl Osborn. This was an Invitational to 20 hand-picked artists, and the deadline is January 1. I was so relieved to get my collages finished, photographed, and entered, with even a few days to spare!
The goal is to raise $8,000 in one day to add to the $205,000 already donated to the American Cancer Society throughFiberart For A Cause. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, February 16, 2011 ... in fact, you should probably start checking it out a day early.
There will be a direct link from Virginia's page to all the collages at least one day prior to Wednesday, February 16 for a preview and all the details about how to acquire your favorite collage(s). Collages will be featured periodically on her blog and Facebook Fan Page prior to February 16.
Don't forget ... you can do some fabulous art-collecting, tax-free! All donations for artwork will be made directly to the American Cancer Society online through FFAChereon Wednesday, February 16 and donors will receive an immediate receipt from the ACS.
Be there, or be square, as we used to say ... most of us have had people in our lives who have been touched by cancer, and this is a tremendous way to honor a either survivor (even yourself!) or someone you love who has died from this disease. Plus ... ART!
