The death of a child,

however, is a tragedy. The Morgan Adams Foundation was created to help raise money and awareness for children affected with cancer.

Artma is an art auction that takes place every other year to fund the Morgan Adams Foundation, and I am pleased to be donating a painting to Artma again this year.

I’ll be donating “Abracadabra,” pictured below.

The event takes place at the Denver Studio Complex, 241 S. Cherokee St. in Denver, on February 6th from 6 to 10 PM.

Also- Denver’s reigning king of pop art Mark Penner Howell is having a studio sale for Haiti this first Friday,February 5th from 6 to 9 PM, at 900 Santa Fe Drive.

50% of all sale prices will go to Haitian relief efforts. From the Westword article:

Here’s how it will work: To buy a painting (ranging from $200 to $2,600), you first make a donation for half the amount to Save the Children, Care, Red Cross or Doctors Without Borders; all of the charities have been vetted for effectiveness and work done in Haiti. A computer will be set up so that you, the consumer, can make the donation and get a tax deduction for your generosity. Give your receipt and the remaining half of the painting price to Penner Howell, and you’ll walk away with a great piece of art and the knowledge that you’ve given to a good cause.

Good art for a good cause conceived by one really great guy.

  1. as a father who recently lost his son to cancer (both my wife and I are artists as well) we appreciate this donation of art and knowing about this organization. http://darinwhite.com and http://shannonwhite.com

  2. Darin-

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Thank you for your comment here, and for the links to your websites. Best wishes to you both.

  3. Katie, Artma was an extraordinary evening thanks to you and so many generous artists, as well as the wonderful guests. During the live auction I stepped out of my volunteer role and ended up winning the bidding on Abracadabra. It will hang proudly in my law firm, a tribute to all our employees who gave their hearts and time to artma.

  4. Jim, thank you so much! I’m delighted to know where the painting went. It was a terrific evening and, hopefully, lots of money was raised for the cause.

    best,

    Katie
