Presenting Cost-Effective Art-as-Gifts:
Chavez works with tiles, acrylics and wood using software, laser cutting technology, and sublimation dyes. He is offering souvenir magnets, art on acrylic, and mural art tiles – all at the vastly reduced starting bids of $8, $10, and $15.
Camille is a visual artist working in many mediums including clay, yarn, cloth, painting furniture, print-making, and more recently, watercolor. She was drawn to painting Native American images photographed by Edward Curtis at the turn of the 20th Century. His subjects were on reservations in the early 1900s living an authentic lifestyle and wearing traditional clothing. Camille likes to use his compositions because he took great care to preserve the essence of native people. Camille is contributing her watercolor painting entitled Hoop Dancer, now offered at half its original starting bid.
Jim O’Halloran is a long-time Subud member living in Seattle, opened in 1994. He is the current recipient of a 2023 SICA Project Grant, stating that “the mystery and allure of music is that the meaning constantly changes.” Jim is offering his jazz music CD, co-created with Victor Little on bass, D’Vonne Lewis on drums, Andy Coe on guitar, Wes Dyring on viola, Nathan Vetter on trombone, Michael Nicolella on classical guitar, Marina Albero on cimbalom – and of course, Jim O’Halloran on clarinet. All this amazing music for a starting bid of only $25!
Ms. Pevec was opened in Aspen in 1970 and through the first wave of talent testing received she had the talent to promote culture. She worked extensively in multicultural education for children in Canada and Portugal using myths, legends, and theater. Investigating the impact on adolescents engaging in school and community garden programs, she interviewed over 100 at-risk teenagers across the United States. These teens from many diverse cultural backgrounds learned to grow food, feed themselves and their communities healthfully, and learned business skills when they sold their produce to restaurants and at Farmers’ Markets. Extensive research supplemented by beautifully candid interviews with students, illustrate the life altering physical and mental benefits that mentored gardening programs can provide. Their young honest voices make up the bulk of her book entitled Growing a Life: Teen Gardeners Harvest Food, Health and Joy, offered now at the starting bid of $10!
