Wu Chang on the Richmond Cultural Centre steps

Tiana Kaczor’s “Wu Chang” is currently on the Richmond Cultural Centre’s steps.

The starting bids of $2000 are a steal. I can’t speak for other artists, but a blog post below explains it, and I’ll tell you again, that I spent more than 175 hours painting my warrior and thus a decent price would be over $5,000. Add on the cost of making the fibreglass sculpture and you can raise that price up to $10,000.  So, dig deep into your pocket books, have some fun at the auction, get a great piece of original art, and remember, this is for charity too!
