ALL ARE WELCOME to this:
ONLINE AUCTION EVENT!
What is the Not So Mini Print Exchange and Fundraiser?
Participants from around the globe submit an edition of ten original 8” x 10” prints to exchange with each other. Two impressions of each edition are retained by A/P to sell and auction to lucky buyers/bidders at affordable rates.
This year, our ONLINE fundraising auction is a great opportunity to reach a broader audience and connect them with incredible original prints to support a great cause.
