THE 100, Fiberart For A Cause fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, wrapped up on February 4th after raising $10,380 in just 2.5 hours. THE 100 invited artists promptly sent out their artwork to THE 100 generous patrons. Three patrons have generously shared photos of the artwork in their homes:
This is the very colorful and cheerful sewing studio of patron Laura H. Osbun. Artist Larkin Van Horn‘s Celebrate! II is the wonderfully embellished small fiber artwork with the purple background. More info on the artwork here. All pairings were random, but this one made me very happy as both Laura and Larkin have been FFAC supporters since the very beginning. Plus Laura loves purple!
Patron Marsha Moody shared this photo of artist Lura Schwarz Smith artwork in an office where it joins many other artworks. Lura’s fiber artwork is instantly recognizable for the fine rendering of a hand. Again, both artist and patron have been supporters of FFAC for its entire 10-year run. More info about When All Else Fails is on Lura’s website here.
Artist Terri Stegmiller also has a lovely blog post about her THE 100 artwork that went to a breast cancer researcher. How wonderful is that?
THE 100’s Pinterest board maintained by Deborah Boschert has more of the artworks as shown before the event.
Thank you to all THE 100 artists and patrons for making the event such a success!
