The Featured Poster Artist for the 2013 Art for Art’s Sake Auction is the amazing Karen “Bottle” Capps. Karen’s works are always very unique and distinct due to her use of old metal beer and beverage tops, along with other objects others would readily describe as “trash”. Karen’s artwork is a perfect fit with this year’s overall theme of Cooper-Young becoming more environmentally-friendly and sustainable.
In addition to Karen’s amazing skills as an artist, she is also a proud Cooper-Young volunteer. Each year, she dedicates her time to helping organize donations from fellow local artists, setting up and moving the Live Auction display at Otherlands and creates the stage set-up for Auction night. She is a past Alexia Hampton Memorial Award winner and a great asset to our neighborhood.
