Avocet-ing for Kidney Research

A Brush of Hope”, The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s artful fund-raising campaign, is rolling again in 2017. Allison Crowe, inspired in part by the avian enthusiasms of her bassist Dave Baird, (pre-cat-hat aka Hobbes-as-headwear season), has painted a sea bird known colloquially as “blue shanks”.

“The American avocet (Recurvirostra americana) is a large wader in the avocet and stilt family, Recurvirostridae. This avocet spends much of its time foraging in shallow water or on mud flats, often sweeping its bill from side to side in water as it seeks its crustacean and insect prey” informs Wikipedia.

All proceeds of the artworks created by Allison and a flock of well-known Canadians will benefit kidney research in Canada – so, please, fly to the auction when it hatches this October 29 and put down your bills in support of this worthy cause. Thank you :)

#BrushofHope2017 is pleased to have received a painting from the talented singer/songwriter, Allison Crowe! The eBay auction will be held from October 29th, 12 p.m. to November 8th 12 p.m. EST On Search for "Brush for Hope" All proceeds from the auction are donated to The Kidney Foundation of Canada. #newfoundland #music #brushofhope #allisoncrowe #canadian #artist #art #arte
