“Color for a Cause” is the latest exhibit at FOUND:RE Phoenix, located at 1100 North Central Avenue, in conjunction with Downtown Phoenix Friday’s Art Walk. The exhibit will remain on display through Tuesday, April 30, the exhibit features paintings and mixed media by local artist JoAnn Augur.
Augur, who has had dedicated shows at the hotel’s gallery previously, has added an element of charity to her latest exhibit. This was inspired by her gratitude for not only her art career but also the many opportunities she’s had to showcase her art.
“I feel so fortunate to be able to make art and share it with people. It’s so inspiring to have this opportunity and I really want to give something back,” Augur says of her decision to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of works from this exhibit to charity. The name of the exhibit developed from the fact that most people recognize her art by its use of vibrant and bold colors throughout her landscapes, stills and abstract paintings.
Those that purchase art during the show can select from three local organizations to have their donation made or choose a charity near and dear to their own hearts. The Color for a Cause exhibit showcases previously unseen works from Augur that she calls “a little bit of everything” that she has created over the past six months. Themes of color, nature, movement and architecture have inspired her latest exhibit as well.
