Toledo - 1Matters - Silent Auction

Silent Auction Items
Finally back home from the 1Matters Toledo trip - WOW. I was introduced so many dedicated people who volunteer their time for a great cause - helping the 'un-housed' get domestic autonomy. It was an eye opening experience. My props to these dedicated folks through which I was able to see what is possible with a 'little help from our friends' felt really good to be a proverbial fly on the wall watching them tirelessly work their magic.....I have started a 'face of 1Matters' on my facebook page and will be posting images of these good folks in the next week or so.

To this end I have donated almost 60 images which include vintae and new music, iPhone and personal work to the cause. This work is at the 20 North Gallery in Toledo (not sure they have updated their website yet but the work is truly there) until October 30th. One component of this show is the silent auction that includes a few signed prints - 2 Billy Joel and 2 John Mellencamp - signatures and images are below. There is also a rare Mountain photo and a canvas print of Leonard Cohen available. Below are the images in the silent auction...

Billy Joel - Budakon Arena - Tokyo 1984

John Mellencamp - Los Angeles - 1994

And below ar ethe other two music items in the silent auction.
Leonard Cohen - Beacon Theater

Mountain (last show) - Dec 31, 1974 - The Felt Forum in New York City
And let's not forget Kathleen Stevens who donated a piece of her artwork to the silent auction - Kathleen runs the Renaissance Fine Art and Design Gallery in Carmel, Indiana where I rteach workshops and show work.

 Birdyboo: A pique assiette work made with vintage bits of china, stained glass, rhinestones and victorian findings. The artist loves to use found items that possess a beauty all their own, creating a new life for bits and pieces that might otherwise be lost to time.  Birdy boo is a piece from a collection that honors re-birth of the creative spirit and what that can mean to individual artistic expression.  1 Matters Silent Auction is the perfect place for Birdyboo to have landed...
