One of our favorite artists, Victoria Huckins, recently participated in a fundraising event at the Escondido Arts Partnership Gallery called Artful Inches in Escondido, California. The proceeds will go towards the High School Exhibition at the gallery.
Victoria and 17 other fantastic artists spent about two weeks painting 30 feet of watercolor paper. Art enthusiasts are invited to buy pieces in four different size options of this unique hand-painted art by the inch. Buyers are given a matte in the size of their choosing to move around the artwork as a frame to determine which section they want to take home. What a fun way to collect art and support a good cause! And at $1 an inch, buying original artwork was never so affordable. Don’t worry, it’s not too late…you have until March 6, 2012 to choose your art by the inch. Go to www.escondidoarts.org for address and hours.
Have a look at the Escondido Municipal Gallery, get some original art of your own, and help some high school students expand their artistic horizons. Be sure to also check out our stretched canvas wall art that you can buy by the piece, not the inch, from Victoria Huckins’ entire collection.
