NAfA fundraiser: online art auction

Niagara artist Jan Yates is donating a portion of her proceeds from online art sales to Niagara Action for Animals this holiday season. If you want to bid (this is an auction rather than shopping cart-style deal), or even just see what's up for the bidding, check out her website.

Some info about Yates:
For the past decade Jan Yates has been compelled to create work directly from the land. Inspired by Canada's Emily Carr, Yates paints almost entirely plein air, enabling her to engage in an intimate dialogue with our natural and agricultural world. She examines the correlation between her own practice and the cycle of harvest- each having faith in what the land will give. Protection and the importance of maintaining ecological integrity concerning protected land also informs her work.
