We are having a silent art auction at the Ansel Adams Gallery with all proceeds benefiting the Yosemite Climbing Association. The auction is from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on Saturday July 10, 2010. There will be hors d'oeuvres and wine served. This is a great opportunity to acquire some nice art at a great price. Artwork will be up for three days and if you can't be there on Saturday you can have one of the Gallery workers proxy bid for you.

If any of you artists out there are in a position to donate that would be great.

This is our single biggest fundraiser and is a lot of fun.

Hi Ken,

I purchased that extraordinary photograph by Michael Frye at the 2007 art auction. It was one jewel of that event.

Shamefully, I must admit that it sits in its original box, in my home office. Back then, I believe I paid about $550 or so.

If you do not mind accepting previously purchased art, I would be happy to donate it back to the YCA for this fund raiser. Send me a PM.

The July date, for this event, is much better than November. The tourons will be out in force, with dollars to spend.

Best to you,





Chicken Skinner

Ken,

On my travels up here in No. Cal discovered a new artist, Phil Bone, a climber from bitd Sonoma. He is, I think, super talented. I'll see if he will donate one of his pieces. Lynnie

Thanks Dave, I will send an email. I always loved that shot since I saw the pictures when the slides came back.

Lynne, I know Phil and haven't seen him in a while. Didn't know he was doing photography. Tell him hi for me.

You guys and gals are awesome!

Chicken Skinner,

Not photos. Phil is into oils and painting on canvas. I was fortunate to see his recent creations and took photos of what he has done recently. They are Good ! I have one I am purchasing from him. lynne

I think Phil Bone is a local from Sonora, rather than Sonoma. Just sayin'.

I'm in as usual.

We'll talk about what works best for you. You can choose one and I'll send the print or I'll see what I have ready to go

Peace

Snowed in the Valley 4 times in April and once in May already!

Might as well post a picture from this April on the art thread

Jerry, you are correct. Sonora.....I'm still learning my No Cal geography :D

Ken, talked to Phil's wife this morning. They are happy to donate a piece. Please email me details and I'll get with them. Maybe see you at the Sacherer event this weekend. Peace and Joy, lynne

There will be MANY more people there in July. Mostly tourists, yes, but they tend to have more $$ than climbers. You may need to take it outside since the gallery may be too small for the crowd.

And how about a loud (not-silent) auction? People can hold up pine cones with their ID number on them or something...
