Martinez Studio supports the Museum of Wisconsin Art by donating a weaving to their biennial signature fundraiser, “Vintage 2018: Pedals, Plates, and Pours.” Proceeds of the auction go toward art education programs and museum operations. The auction takes place July 14, 6 pm – 10 pm. Remote bidding is available.
The contemporary art auction will include a hand-spun wool weaving from Wence’s “Buffalo Robe” series, team-woven by Wence and daughter, Malena Martinez. The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian has a “Buffalo Robe” by Wence in its permanent collection. Works by Craig Blietz, Fred Stonehouse, and Beth Lipman are also auctioned.
