GIVING BACK-KeepAChildAlive Buy Art and Do Good!
Julie Weaverling - Contemporary Artist
Like many others I have been moved by an awareness of the global fight against HIV/AIDS. I will donate 25% of the purchase price of all paintings in the Inspire series as a way to contrribute to the cause. The money will be donated to Keep A Child Alive. You can check the organization out at www.KeepAChildAlive.org. They are dedicated to providing life-saving AIDS treatment, care, nutrition, support services and love to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.
87% of donated money goes to programs for the children to help fight the AIDS pandemic. An annual benefit concert with co-founder Alicia Keys is used to fund administrative costs as well as raise additional funds.
The Inspire series features original encaustic paintings, 8"x8". Many layers of encaustic (molten beeswax, damar resin and pigment) are fused together using a torch. In these inspirational pieces, the word is transferred using carbon paper and then carved and filled with oil paint. More layers of encaustic and more carving...then the Braille translation is added with dots created using a special stylus tool (so that you can "feel" the inspiration!) Signed on the back by the artist each painting is framed and ready to hang in a black floater frame, 10"x10". Price includes shipping within U.S. Shipping is $35 per painting for international orders. Each piece is $200 with $50 going to KCA. Any 3 paintings may be purchased for $500.Each piece is $200 with $50 going to Keep A Child Alive. Any 3 paintings may be purchased for $500. Thank you for your support. for
