Grab a Chair
Here's a partial view of the chair I decorated for this year's Chair Affair. It's called "Love Seat." It's about 6 or 7 inches high, and very pink. Not my usual color playground, but everyone needs to get out sometimes, right?
There are about 100 pieces for sale at this year's auction, which raises a LOT of money for Portland's Community Warehouse. Most are full-size chairs, but some are other furniture pieces, and some are paintings of chairs. I'm not sure if mine is the only mini.
Five members of ORA have contributed pieces this year: Robin Esterkin, Laurie Fendel, myself, Gary Pearlman, and Eddy Shuldman. Cool, huh?
The auction takes place on April 8th... it's a gala auction dinner. Tickets are $50 per person, or $400 for a table of 10. There will be a live auction for things like beach trips and cooking class, with the Chairs etc being sold by silent auction. If you want to see the Chairs ahead of time, there is a preview reception on Thursday evening March 25th at the Galleria downtown. Admission is free. I'll be at both events, and hope to see you there!
