As with all things this year, nonprofits are seeking new ways to continue to share their programs. For the past 3 years, I was invited by the Lambertville Historical Society to participate in their “Plein Air Plus” silent auction fundraiser. Normally held at Rago Auction House, it is was a fun event with plenty of food donated by local restaurants and lots of active looking and bidding on art. This year, the organizers contacted me to participate once again in a re-imagined version.
The message I received about Plein Air Plus online said, “We want you to keep all profits if you sell any paintings through our website or publicity. This event is to support you. It is a way to keep the arts alive during this time. Good luck, and let us know how you make out. We are cheering for you!” Wow.
So, I’d like to return that wonderful generosity and offer that if I sell an edition of my bronze sculpture “Walking Shadman” during this event, I will make a donation back to them in support of their work to keep local history alive. Below you will find a very short video and more information about the sculpture.
Cast from an actual shad fish that was caught off Lewis Island in Lambertville, NJ.
If you are interested in purchasing this sculpture, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I accept Venmo payments @Aylin-Green or checks.
Wishing all the best to the artists participating in Plein Air Plus!
