The 2014 International Mosaic Auction Is Coming!

Mosaic Auction

One of the best things about donating art is finding worthy causes. I continue to give to this one because Lin Schorr works hard to organize an event such as this. It is no small feat. Lin does an amazing job from beginning to end.

The poster above shows 'Sun and Moon', the mosaic star box I donated. If you don't remember how I made it, covering the lid inside and out plus the base inside, sides and bottom too you can find many photos on flickr to look through.

I also donated a mosaic pendant which is a nice treat for those who want to something small to bid on.

I'll continue to share info about this event as time gets closer. Please consider bidding for a piece of art and help DWB - you get the reward of knowing your funds are going for a wonderful cause and you get a piece of mosaic art! You must join the site in order to bid. It's free!

An international group of mosaic artists whose works will be available for bid in the November ‘2014 International Mosaic Auction’ benefit for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières at the online auction website:

Known in the U.S. as Doctors Without Borders (DWB) and worldwide as Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), DWB/MSF is an international medical humanitarian organization that provides aid in nearly 70 countries to people whose survival is threatened, providing medical aid to those most in need.

This auction collection of 141 mosaic artworks from artists representing 13 countries is an example of the diverse creativity in this again-burgeoning art form. Some artists use classic materials that date back to the origins of mosaic, while others take full advantage of the limitless material choices available today.
