Three local artists intend to celebrate the end of summer by raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project
and the Soldier Ride
this weekend. Mixed media artist Ben Moon
, renowned contemporary artist William Quigley
, and emerging artist Alexander George McCue
are hosting a closing exhibition and auction at Skrapper Studios on Saturday, August 16, 2014, from 7:30 to 10 p.m.
"What started as a fundraiser turned into a rehabilitative event," Chris Carney
, one of the owners of the Stephen Talkhouse
and founders of the Soldier Ride, said of the event. "Empowering them to help their fellow soldiers not only ended up being the greatest rehabilitation of all, but allowed the ride to perpetuate itself. It's been amazing to be a part of."
The live auction will feature a portrait of Native American symbol Stephen Taukus "Talkhouse" by Quigley, a mixed media piece, Jungle Boogie,
by Moon and Passioni
by McCue. The trio will donate a significant percentage of proceeds from the auction and from sales to the Wounded Warrior Project and the Soldier Ride.
Other noteworthy pieces include Quigley's portraits of Mick Jagger
and Ethan Hawke
and pieces from Moon's new "Before and After" series.
Through this event, Moon, Quigley and McCue hope to spread awareness and raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. The group's campaign for this cause originally began last month with their collaboration with local artists and businesses and with members of the charity to launch the "Sip to the Soldiers" event.
Skrapper Studios is located at 62 Newtown Lane in East Hampton.
