ART AUCTION featuring James Coldsnow
The evening will also include an art auction featuring Zen Sumi Ink Artwork by San Francisco Artist James Coldsnow as well as other local Austin artists. James Coldsnow is producing custom pieces for this event — all circles — because at the heart of what Amala does is an open circle of caring, sharing and welcoming. His art is modern and minimal yet conveys a centeredness and connectedness.
Artist James Coldsnow explained his support of the Amala Foundation and the synchronistic connection. “Most of my work includes circles. To me circles are welcoming and open, embracing and enveloping. That’s what Amala helps kids feel during very challenging times and that’s what I’d like people to experience in my art.”
