November is about to be ripped off the calendar. Boy that flew by.
We are moving quickly into the Season of Giving.
December 7th – New York, come to the Friends of Friends Photography Auction at the Metropolitan Pavilion,
123 West 18th St
New York, NY 10011-4133
“The Level” is the scene for Friends of Friends Photography Auction. Cocktail reception and preview starts at 6 pm and the live bidding runs from 7 – 8:30pm. So give the gift that goes a long way. $50 admission buys you an auction paddle and a chance to mingle with some of the artists that have donated signed prints and art patrons to benefit the Angkor Hospital for Children.
The Angkor Hospital for Children was the dream of Kenro Izu, a photographer who witnessed the death of a child on one of his visits to Angkor Wat. He knew then that he had to make a difference and called upon the art world to help his dream become a reality with the opening of AHC in 1999. His work continues through the efforts of friends and volunteers at Friends Without A Border. This is the 14th annual photography auction.
In 2008, Jene Youtt and I ventured over to Cambodia after a solo exhibit of Jene’s photography in Kyoto. We were touched by the open hearted, warm and inviting Cambodian people and we knew that we had to give back. We met and talked with John McDermott (photographer and gallery owner) where we learned about Kenro and his charity. Art making a difference… we are now among some of the world’s leading photographers and galleries who generously donate their prints to FWAB.
The beautiful, printed catalog in now available online for previewing. The 14th Annual Photography Auction Catalog
Here is a small sample of the prints that the gavel will fall upon … going, going, gone – SOLD to the highest bidder.
Stop by after work, enjoy a cocktail, mingle with artists, collectors and patrons, give with an open heart and make a difference.
