Portland artist Michelle Ramin just sent me an email announcing an art auction extravaganza. Michelle is headed to San Francisco Art Institute this summer for grad school, and she needs our help getting there! To help pay for tuition and living expenses, Michelle is auctioning off one original work a day for the next four weeks. Some of the pieces up for bidding include the works shown in this post. To view the complete gallery of works for auction, go here.
I'm a huge fan of Michelle's art (read my interview with her). I attended the opening of her show in March where her mixed media portraits of friends and family were featured. Below is one of her latest portraiture works. I absolutely love the patterns and colors in this piece! On July 24, Michelle will be auctioning this art work, along with other larger pieces, at FalseFront in Portland. If you're in the area, come by and show your support. There's even talk of homemade ice cream!
