Rare Candy: A Pokemon Gallery for Charity
Last Friday was the opening reception to the gallery that Amy Kim and I curated. It began as a fun idea about a year ago and was inspired by http://pokemonbattleroyale.tumblr.com/
With only a month before school and graduation, we managed to get the gallery set up with the help of San Jose's Umpqua Bank and the owners of Anno Domini Gallery and the coordinators of South First Fridays Art Walk, Cherri Lakey and Brian Eder.
All of the proceeds made from the auction will go to Canines for Disabled Kids, a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of deaf and physically disabled children by partnering them up with trained service dogs.
If you weren't able to make it out to the opening reception, the show runs till the 17th of May, so check it out!!!
You can also check out the online gallery/auctioning site which my awesome friend, Denise Magdale and her boyfriend, Matt Drollette designed.
Go bid here! :)
Here is my piece for the show. I got Metapod. Haha :D
