Ransom & Mitchell, whose excellent art show Smoke and Mirrors just closed in San Francisco, are doing something else awesome: They’ve produced an affordable, open edition archival pigment print with all profits going to The American Red Cross’ Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
This portrait of artist Scott Musgrove was created in March of 2012 as part of our ongoing artist portrait series. We were paying tribute to Musgrove’s kind-hearted paintings of mythical, extinct beasts by placing him as the character in his own narrative. [We] created [it] many months before Hurricane Sandy to express our concern for the planet’s fragility and our belief that the human species has the strength to face this challenge with intelligence and dignity. We hope you agree.
Ransom & Mitchell’s “The Last Good Man” was one of my favorites from Smoke and Mirrors. Here’s an opportunity to own a print of it for $60, help out people who need it and prove that Musgrove isn’t really the last good man.
Across the country, Sebastian Errazuriz’s NY studio was hit hard by the hurricane.
Unable to work and tired of watching the horrible disaster unfold on the news, Errazuriz decided to design something to help raise much-needed relief funds. This idea occurred to him after seeing the water line marked on the walls of the flooded galleries in New York’s Chelsea art district.
“I Still Love NY” and “Manhattan Blackout” are hand dip-dyed for $40 each and available through GREY AREA here.
