Against The Grain; Auction Benefitting LA Art Students by New American Paintings

We received word of a great auction this weekend (Saturday) at the Mark Moore Gallery that will raise grant funds for one Los Angeles-based student artist. Against the Grain, according to its creators, 5790projects, the auction will,”feature works on paper that showcase diversified studio practices through a shared medium. Unlike any other charity arts auction, Against the Grain pioneers an artist community-based project in direct support of the next generation of emerging artists.” We are proud to say that many past feature New American Paintings artists will be participating, including, Eddie Martinez, Taravat Talepasand, Allison Cortson, Libby Black, Ryan Schneider, Brian Cooper, Ana Fernandez, Aaron Zimmerman, Bob Snead, Scott Anderson, Jason Adkins, Karl  Connolly, and Annie Lapin.
