Nathan and Elisa Bond’s Fight Against Cancer

I’d like to encourage you all to donate artwork to what will be a terrific auction for a great cause, to benefit Illustration’s own Nathan Bond and his family. Some of you may have heard Nathan’s story in the news. He and his wife were diagnosed with advanced forms of cancer virtually simultaneously, and they have an 18- month-old daughter.

Artwork should be delivered to the Illustration Program office no later than May 6. Please pass the word on. Details below!

Hi Everyone,

I am organizing a benefit auction for Nathan and Elisa Bond.  For those of you who do not know their story, please see below.  There are links to articles and videos that tell all.  Nathan teaches painting in the Illustration Program and drawing in the Foundation Program.

I am looking for artists to donate a work for this cause.  All works collected will be featured in an exhibition for one night (May 10) at Flux Factory in Brooklyn.  Here is the format for the auction:  There will be one ticket sold for each work collected.  Purchasing a ticket guarantees you will receive a work in the show.  When the auction begins, the holder of the first ticket number pulled randomly will be allowed first choice of the show.  We will then proceed drawing tickets until all works in the show are claimed.  Ticket prices are yet to be determined, but will be approximately $200-$250.  Works are taken home as they are chosen.  We will have volunteers on hand during the choosing
of the works to collect contact info to be made available to each artist on who chose their work.

I have been asking many of you in person as I see you if you would be willing to donate a work for this auction.  I currently have about 40 commitments and I thank you all.  My goal however is to bring this number to between 100-150 so if you would like to participate, or know of another artist who could donate a work, I would appreciate knowing as soon as possible.   I need to have the art collected and accounted for in order to sell tickets, and as I am sure you can imagine, preparing for a show of this magnitude will not be easy in such a short amount of time.

If you have already committed to donating a work to this auction or would like to, please send an email to toddlambrix@gmail.com.  Please include a current Bio, Artist statement, and or CV to be printed and made available at the show, the name of the work, medium, dimensions, and date the work was made.  I will respond to you with directions for delivering the work.  We intend to hang the works at the show in the most appropriate manner possible.  If your piece requires special handling, hanging instructions or hardware, please be sure to detail this in the email.  Please keep in mind that people should be able to leave the night of May 10th with their collected work with relative
ease.  We cannot leave anything in the gallery space past the night of the reception.

I would also like to request that you share this story with artists within your professional circles and see if they are interested in donating a work for this show.  Please pass along my email to them or send me theirs so that I may get in touch.

As with any opening or gallery reception, all are invited to attend and I hope that you will spread the word so that we can have a supportive turnout.  Flux Factory is located at: 39-31 29th Street, Long Island City, Queens.  Again, the event will be held on May 10, 2011 from 5:00-8:00pm  Auction will begin promptly at 6:15.
