The Interstitial Arts Foundation (promoting "art made in the interstices between genres and categories...disciplines, mediums, and cultures") is celebrating the anniversary of the release of the Interfictions Anthology
with a charity auction featuring jewelry made by Interfictioneers and inspired by the stories in Interfictions. This is a fascinating gang of science fiction/fantasy people who are really breaking new ground!
(Pictured: 'Willow Pattern' by Elise Matthesen, based on the story 'Willow Pattern' by Jon Singer.)
To celebrate the anniversary of Interfictions, we invited jewelers/beaders to create wearable art based on the 19 stories in our first original anthology. Come bid on some amazing pieces by many talented artists, including Elise Matthesen, JoSelle Vanderhooft – and Interfictions authors Leslie What, Rachel Pollack, and K. Tempest Bradford, who have created one-of-a-kind, collectible wearable interpretations of their own work!
New pieces go up every two days and auctions last for 4-7 days. Bid early and often–bids start as low as $10! All proceeds will go to supporting Interstitial Arts projects, including the second Interfictions volume, Interfictions 2, to be published in Fall 2009
