More than 20 artists participate in the Painted Prosthetic Project, which raises money to assist homeless and wounded veterans. A gallery show, kicking off on Jan. 6, displays the works–created on prosthetic legs– before they’re auctioned off online at the end of the month. The gallery hosting the show is Arch Enemy Arts, which is based in Philadelphia. After the end of the run there, the pieces are shipped to Orlando to be auctioned off.

Artists include Chet Zar (last mentioned on HiFructose.com here), Rachael Bridge, Buddy Nestor, Richard J. Oliver, Mab Graves, Megan Buccere, and others. The content ranges from psychedelic scenes to pop art, and from abstract pieces to decorative works.
All of the funds raised go to a charity called Warriors Pathfinder, which will also collect photos of the painted pieces for an upcoming book. The idea for the project from artist Jon Palestini, who teamed up with friend and veteran James Bisset, founder of the charity group. The non-profit was started in 2012.
