    Re: Snap 2012 Live Auction and Photo Competition

    Ok a update

    its getting closer,,, I am in the live auction,, so is a Herb Ritts image, wow, we both were adopted ( means that a private group will match the bid on our prints) You can see all the work for the Live Auction if you click on that heading. I hope some of you get involved, all money raised is dedicated for a very good cause, If you are in Toronto at the end of March let me know I will make sure tickets are available( this event sells out every year) not free tickets, just tickets to buy.

    Elevator is getting involved with the curatial aspect of next year, It would be nice to see some of you get selected, this is a nice stepping stone for emerging artists.
