Artist Help Japan : Ema Auction

the amazing christina conway (who organized & curated the kokeshi shows)
yet again organized something truly great - an auction to raise money for
Artists Help Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Fund - Give2Asia.

artists were asked to create an ema, small wooden plaques for prayer and wish
often seen hanging in japanese shinto shrines.

100% of Proceeds to Benefit Give2Asia Earthquake & Tsunami 2011 Fund

Please keep in mind that this is a Charity Auction and not just an art sale. It's not about getting a "steal".
It's about contributing to an important cause and getting a "Thank You" in return with original art.
These are talented artists that donated 100% of their time, creativity and proceeds for help with the recovery of Japan
due to the recent Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Reactor Emergencies.
Please bid generously and avoid "sniping". MANY MANY THANKS!
Sincerely, Christina Conway/Curator
