Richard Schmid Fine Art Auction: Sunday, Sept. 2

"In the early 90’s the internationally known artist and author, Richard Schmid, rode into town [Rist Canyon, CO] brimming with energy, enthusiasm, and fresh ideas.  When Richard realized that the only organization immediately available to protect his family and property from wildfire still relied on second hand, often out of date equipment, he thought it the perfect time to experiment with a long held philosophy that art could be used to do more than just beautify a community."1

"The Richard Schmid Fine Art Auction has been the primary fundraiser for the Rist Canyon Volunteer Fire Department for the past 16 years. This year the High Park wildfire scorched over 87,000 acres and destroyed 259 homes. The power of art to do good has never been greater."2

I am so pleased to have two of my pieces in the Silent Auction. Both the Live and Silent Auction take place this Labor Day Sunday under the Big Top west of Fort Collins, CO. Don't worry if you don't live nearby; participants may bid by phone (see below). Please take this opportunity to obtain a beautiful work of art and to contribute to this group of dedicated firefighters.
