Bidding has started for original artworks, with opening rounds at just $5 each, during the Tiny Art Show this week at Wright’s Custom Framing and Art, 810 Chetco Ave. in Brookings.
“This is the third Tiny Art Show in Brookings, and all proceeds from the silent auction go to CASA of Curry County,” said CASA Tiny Art Show coordinator Lynette McPherson.
“We’ve hung and displayed over 260 pieces of tiny art, measuring no larger than 9 square inches (3 x 3 inches),” she said. Three-dimensional pieces are also available.
The pocket-sized pieces create their own power by posing an intimate experience that invites viewers to come closer. They also have the advantage of being affordable, less physically intimidating and transportable.
“Professional artists, community members, students from the Brookings-Harbor High School art class, and regional supporters of CASA have graciously donated the tiny art,” McPherson said.
Bidding will close at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, during the community’s Second Saturday Art Walk.
CASA - or Court Appointed Special Advocates - “ensures that the best interests of children are represented in the courtroom,” according to the Curry County group’s website. “Volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children.”
