Artist Jennifer Young Responds to Food Bank in Need with Online Art Auctions


According to recent news reports, food banks across the nation have experienced serious shortages in their pantries. Over the holidays, businesses and individuals answered some of that need with significant gifts. But, recognizing that giving often slows after the holidays, Richmond Virginia artist Jennifer Young is holding online charity art auctions to encourage others to continue making donations.

Richmond, VA, January 05, 2008 --(PR.com)-- "While curbing world hunger seems like an overwhelming task," says Young, "we can all make a huge difference in our local communities by simple acts of time, food or cash donations. Surprisingly, it doesn’t take that much to make an impact. In fact, according to the Central Virginia Foodbank’s website, $25 will provide as many as 200 meals."

With that in mind, artist Jennifer Young has launched a new series of auctions for some of her original paintings. For the next 6 months the artist is committing to regularly featuring new charity auctions on her art blog. While the retail value of her paintings list for considerably higher prices, opening bids for her charity art auctions will be set at a value of 200 meals, or $25 per auction. 100% of the proceeds from sales of these paintings will be donated to the Central Virginia Foodbank.

Young is a professional artist, instructor, frequent art blogger, and owner of Jennifer Young Studio & Gallery, in downtown Richmond, Virginia. Known for her vibrant landscape oil and watercolor paintings of France, Italy and the American South, Young's artwork has been purchased internationally by both private and corporate art collectors. A listed artist, Jennifer Young's paintings are sold in commercial art galleries as well as on her own website, www.jenniferyoung.com
