Feb 4th is almost here! and it’s the day to make a contribution to the Virginia Speigal’s FiberArt for a Cause fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and get a piece of unique textile art in exchange from one of the top 100 textile and mixed media artists. Check out all this amazing work to see what you could get in exchange for your donation. There are so many that I would love to have!
This year The 100 Fundraiser to Fight Cancer will bring FiberArt for a Cause’s total contribution to a total of 1/4 million dollars! by raising $10,000 in one day on February 4, 2015.
This is the way it works:
100 artists contributed one piece of artwork and 100 donors will contribute $100 to the American Cancer Society.
Each donor will then be matched by random number generator with a piece of artwork from this list of participating artists. How cool is that? A piece of original art work from a well known mixed media or textile artist for donating $100 to an excellent cause.
My contribution will be this piece of artwork
10″ x 8″
The base patchwork is made from cut up mixed media samplers from my Tea & Ephemera class, that begins with my faux tea stained fabric made with with textile paint. The samplers include stamping, collaged art papers and tea bags with hand drawn and printed images, and metallic gold painted fabric. The moth was painted on the patchwork with acrylic inks and machine quilted on a Peltex substrate.
Donate $100 and it could be yours!
