How’d you like to get a $1,200 work of art for ten measly bucks? You would, wouldn’t you (you cheap-ass art-lover, you!)? Well here’s your chance to really stun someone on Christmas morning with an extravagant present that says more and better things about you than, say, an Ed Hardy nightie and a bottle of Malibu.
Haida artist Marilyn McKee, the same woman featured in this article I wrote for the Daily Dot last year, has turned to Facebook once again, raffling off this impressive copper painting. A jeweler by trade, McKee is branching out and doing more painting this year. This is the largest, most complex piece she has done yet.
Tickets are $10 and you haven’t much time. The draw is in 11 hours, 9am Friday morning. To purchase tickets by electronic transfer, message the artist on Facebook directly or email or phone. Here is what she posted on Facebook a few days ago, and there are still tickets left (two fewer if I can get the transfer done in time!):
The piece is signed by Haida artist Marilyn McKee.
The piece comes with authenticity
and has been painted on a metal canvas 2 feet across.
EMT will be accepted and cost of shipping will be incurred by myself.
Again only 94 tickets are left @10 each. so if only 50 sell your odds increase.
Draw will be Friday morning, Dec 20th @9 am or sooner if sold out.
