Martinez Studio Donates Piece to Smithsonian Auction

auctionRecently, Sandra sent a painting to the Smithsonian Craft Show’s OnlineAuction. “As featured artists in the 2013 Smithsonian Craft Show, we are deeply appreciative of this institution and what they do to advance craft in America. We feel privileged to be able to contribute, in some small way, to the success of this amazing show and further acknowledge what the ‘Smithsonian bump’ meant for us personally.”

The donated piece by Sandra titled Vesssels Dot Study, was made as a study for a weaving. It will be auctioned along with items donated by other artists from Smithsonian Craft Shows as well as top tier galleries and museums nationwide. All proceeds support Smithsonian Women’s Committee grants to the Smithsonian. The auction runs from Monday, April 7 to Tuesday, April 22.
