BE­COME A FACE OF CHANGE

American Art Collector - - News -

AFOC, (A Face of Change) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with VENDITTI–ART for CHANGE, and GOLD RIDGE PUB­LISH­ING, is a 501 c-3 Fed­eral tax-ex­empt non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion founded by the artist’s son, Jayce Venditti, whose in­ten­tions are to bring aware­ness for pos­i­tive change to help pro­tect en­dan­gered species, the en­vi­ron­ment and ecosys­tem on our planet. 50% of all sales of Artist’s work will be do­nated to the collector’s or­ga­ni­za­tion of choice.

We’ve all heard the dire pre­dic­tions and mourned the sad losses. But the plight of Earth’s en­dan­gered crea­tures is sel­dom head­line news any­more. We go about our lives, as do they. And yet, their num­bers con­tinue to dwin­dle. In just one cen­tury, the blink of a plan­e­tary eye—their pop­u­la­tions have been slashed, of­ten lit­er­ally, at the hands of preda­tors who of­ten slay them for noth­ing more than brag­ging rights and tro­phies.

The an­i­mals I honor in my paint­ings—from the tow­er­ing to the tiny, beasts to in­sects—are on a dan­ger­ous precipice. My hope is to cap­ture the no­bil­ity, the beauty, the ex­quis­ite threads of na­ture we would trag­i­cally lose for­ever if these fel­low crea­tures are al­lowed to per­ish.” —JVen­ditti
