Default Chazhound art and photography auction idea

we have SO many Chazzers who are extremely talented and I would LOVE the chance to own a painting, printed photograph etc from one of you guys. So here's my idea.

I was wondering if Chazzers would be interested in doing a big auction. Renee had mentioned maybe doing it in September or October to give artists plenty of time to create their submissions for the auction. Plenty of us do paintings, sketches, etc.... Smkie makes her incredible ducks and bowls, etc... we have so many photographers etc.

Renee mentioned a website where you can host an online auction that she's going to look more into for us, but I was thinking we can have a big auction where we can have the opportunity to purchase art from other Chazzers and we can have it set up so that all of the proceeds go towards a rescue of our choice. I was thinking we could all vote on the rescue we choose to send the proceeds to. My vote would be for the canine center in Mexico that Grace helps out at.

Anyways... let me know if you're interested in this idea and if we have enough people interested we can work towards making it happen. If it's a success then maybe we can do this once a year.

This is a very neat idea. Can't wait to hear what others have to say. At this time, I would definitely be willing to contribute a photo or two. I also think the Center where Grace volunteers sounds like a great first 'target'.

I happen to have access to a real, licensed auctioneer, so I might be able to get us an official auction -- with lots of traffic -- on Auction Zip - Live Auction Locator - Find Auctions Anywhere!

Gonna move this up to the Hydrant for awhile to get more sunshine. Then we'll move it back down here later.
