Hello everybody, we are pleased to announce that we are holding an art auction to benefit the victims of human trafficking. If you are an artist who would like to join us in this cause by donating a piece then please contact us here. If you are an art lover then please come to the art auction and add some great art to your collection.

The proceeds from this auction will go to ZOE and She Dances, two organizations that are dedicated to eradicating human trafficking and providing after-care to victims that have been rescued. Human trafficking is a modern day form of slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. It is an under-reported cause to which there is a great need for general awareness. Human trafficking is now the third largest criminal industry in the world.

With this art auction, we are hoping to raise awareness and funds to fight trafficking. Our goal is to raise 5,000 dollars for these two organizations.

Nic Sweet

Nic Sweet, an Alaskan artist living in the L.A. area, has been drawing and creating since he was four years old. His work spans from the political and satirical to the wide-reaching fantasies of the graphic worlds he creates. Dedicated to his drawing he often says the one other art form he would love to pursue would have to be Boxing.

Nic had this to say about the auction "I wasn't aware that militias were continuing to slave out people in the Congo to mine minerals until a few years ago. Honestly I was furious, but the only thing I felt I could do was repost the articles I was reading. I felt helpless. So when I heard about the show, I jumped at the opportunity to contribute with these amazing artists." - Nic Sweet.
