Tiny Art Sale
Tiny Art Sale

This was held at the Oceanside Museum of Art in June.  It was so quirky and fun!  Artists volunteered/donated*  4″ x 6″ pieces of art to be sold for $20 each, to raise funds for children’s programs at the museum.  KIds’ (under 18) art was only $10 each.  There were many more pieces than I’ve shown here, from photography to drawing to textiles to watercolor.

It was well-attended, and I donated five pieces and bought some too.  I like the idea that original art should be affordable.  We all make art, at least when we are young, in school (hoping all children get to go to school.)  We don’t need to stop — making or appreciating.  Thank you.

*Artists are always being asked to donate.  “It’s good exposure.”  Sigh.  Just ask your favorite chef to donate a dinner for 12 at your house — good exposure?  Haha.  I don’t hear poets or musicians or playwrights or others being asked, either…well, in this case, I did it anyway.

  1. I love to own original art. I occasionally buy postcard reproductions for memory’s sake, but I hang only originals in my house. I can’t do this with music. Live music is so much better than recorded, but my life would be pretty dismal if I didn’t have my LPs, CDs, and MP3s!
