I heART Japan online charity auction
In the days following the devastating 11 March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Brisbane-based Japanese ceramic artist Kenji Uranishi and his wife Sonia felt overwhelmed with sadness and a sense of helplessness being so far away and unable to help.
Turning their grief into positive action, a call went out to their network of artist friends and colleagues for help and was answered by 20 talented artists from around the country.
What resulted was i heART japan, a beautiful collection of work by a talented group of artists including ceramicists, painters, photographers and designers to be auctioned (here) on eBay over a 2.5 day period starting Friday 8 April (3pm EST) and ending Sunday 10 April (8pm EST).
The work can be previewed (here) on Facebook in advance of the auction: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=196940070336811&aid=45605
Net proceeds of the auction will be donated to the Red Cross Japan and Pacific Appeal 2011.
