JEST in Time: Art Auction to Benefit ArtHatchJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 31 Aug 2010
JEST in Time ends this Saturday, September 4th with many of the pieces at less than half of retail. With so many vital arts programs being cut in our tough economic times, make sure creative youth are still able to attend school and access art classes and materials by bidding on a piece in this worthy auction.
The exhibition features 36 artists from around the world who have created pieces centered around the theme and size 12 x 12 inches or smaller.
The exhibition will be silent auction style with all pieces starting at $100. Bidders will have the opportunity to take their chances and bid on the piece, for $100 or higher, or purchase the piece for the "buy it now" price stated by the artist.
