||Twitter Art Exhibit - Fine Art by Maude McDonald ©|
I was honored when asked to serve as an Honorary Ambassador to the International Twitter Art Exhibit. This organization was created by
Norwegian artist, David Sandum, and has grown from its grass roots in Norway to an International venue. This last January, the
exhibition was held in Los Angeles.
“Through art we can change the world.”
#Twitterartexhibit utilizes social media and public engagement to generate income for charities and nonprofit organizations. In the past, #Twitterartexhibit has generated funds for children’s books at a local library and resources for a Women’s shelter. Proceeds raised by the January 2013 Los Angeles exhibit went to Art Division LA. To view a video about the recipient group, Click Here
Artists worldwide contribute postcard sized art to the gallery hosting the exhibit. The gallery organizes a local showing, followed by online sales of any art not sold during the opening night exhibition. 100% of proceeds go to the charity chosen for that year's exhibition.
The following were my contributions to the Twitter Art Exhibition LA 2013 Exhibition. I was thrilled to learn both paintings sold.
