After Ramona Otto retired as an elementary school teacher, she pursued her passion for art. Drawing inspiration from the common objects found in her old classroom, Otto creates mostly recycled art that brings life to vintage and thrifted objects. She collects the materials for each themed piece from flea markets and garage sales. The upcoming Venice Art Walk: Benefit Auction 2020, presented by Venice Family Clinic, will feature a collectible charm titled Lucky Duck from Otto.
Claudy Jongstra’s work is also highlighted in the auction. Jongstra was introduced to felt in 1994 when she saw a Mongolian yurt on display in the Nederlands Textielmuseum. She began to experiment with fabrics, especially combining wool with silk fibers or transparent silk organza. The artist eventually became known for the technique of felting. The auction will also include Ed Moses’ #2 Nose painting. Recognized as a leading postwar abstract painter in Southern California, Moses incorporates semi-representational scenes in his paintings.
