On The Block: Paddle8 Benefit Auction For The Venice Family Clinic Starts TodayAuthor:Philip Ferrato
No matter how far the ACA has gotten, there are still people in the LA area without health care, and the Venice Family Clinic is there to help close the gap for the uninsured, low-income families and individuals, and the homeless.
You can help out while acquiring art through this online sale at Paddle8 that begins today at 3:00pm. All works were donated by the artists and Paddle8 is only taking 7% to cover the costs of mounting the sale, making this a win for the clinic and the community it serves.
We’re in love with this piece by Ned Evans’ 2212VH, a 24×36-inch acrylic on styrene expected to fetch $3,500. Meanwhile, Mark X. Farina takes the aerosol spray to new heights with I Quit FB Again, estimated at $300. We know the feeling.
We can imagine Danny First’s recycled plastic bench ($5,500) as a daily reminder of one’s mortality. Or a reflection that somehow, Andy Warhol’s fifteen minutes is continually being recycled.
Danny Heller’s exquisiste hyper-realist oil on canvas, Swiss Miss at Sunset Study from 2009 is estimated to bring $1,200.
The art world heavy hitter in the sale is Ed Ruscha, who donated this 2009 lithograph Here and Now. Part of a recent series of post-Pop word images, it will probably raise over $5,000 for the Clinic.
Long-time Santa Monica resident and Clinic supporter Don Bachardy donated this untitled portrait of a Venice Clinic client. A compelling amalgam of dignity and heartbreak, the 34×26-inch work in colored pencil and ink is expected to bring $7,500.
