About this event
A number of Seattle artists with connections to Japan had the same idea at the same time. What can we do to aid recovery efforts from the devastation from last week’s earthquake and tsunami? The greatest asset we have to contribute is our work, and with your help, we can convert that artwork into the most versatile asset – money to support relief efforts. All the artwork – paintings, drawings, calligraphy, sumi-e, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, prints, and more – has been donated. No commissions are being paid, and all the hard costs for the event have been donated.
The Pleasure of Tiny Things for Japan
From Diem Chau’s Blog:
I’ve been sitting here for an hour thinking about what to write and how to write it… for the past few days I’ve been glued to the news about Japan’s earthquake and tsunami disaster. It is so shocking to see such devastation and chaos. I am in awe at how the Japanese people have persevered through these difficult days. People stood in line, paid for items, kept their cool, helped their friends and neighbors. Every single person kept their civility. Such strength is inspiring. My heart goes out to everyone there and I hope that perseverance will get them through the difficult days/months ahead.
I’d like to make a humble offering and raffle off a crayon family portrait for the Japanese Red Cross Society. The winner will get up to 3 crayons carved to their specifications
