Artists featured in the Microvisions Exhibit have generously donated their time and talent to create a painting to help support tomorrow’s illustrators. Each painting will be auctioned on eBay with all of the proceeds going to the Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship fund.
The eBay auction is now available. Click here to bid on your favorite piece! The auction will end on May 6 at 7pm.
The history of the Student Scholarship is an impressive one. Since its inception, it has bestowed over one million dollars to the award winners and their respective schools. The Society’s Education Committee and Jury review approximately 7000 entries every year. From this selection the jury reconvenes to review the original paintings and honor select pieces with cash awards. Illustrators who have been featured in the show have gone on to become some of the field’s brightest stars. To date, Microvisions has raised over $15,000 for these scholarships.
Artists featured in this year's exhibit include Scott Bakal, Julie Bell, Scott Brundage, Brian Despain, Nathan Fowkes, Rebecca Guay, Scott Gustafson, John Picacio, Dan Dos Santos, Peter de Seve, Chris Rahn and Terry Whitlatch.
