Norwescon’s charity auction is always fun and exciting but this year’s event is going to be very special. In addition to all the amazing donations we receive each year from our dealers, artists, and members, we have received an amazing donation of art from the collection of the Rolls Family. There are so many pieces that we are having to split the collection over this year and next. The collection consists of what can be describe as Hard Sci-Fi art, spacescapes, rocket ships, and stars.
William Rolls and Dana Kramer-Rolls collected these art pieces throughout the years from 1970 to roughly 2000, primarily from science fiction and fantasy conventions throughout California. Many of these pieces were created for art auctions, and as proud supporters of independent artists, the Rolls family has always striven to collect from new and emerging artists.
After William passed away, the collection was inherited by his granddaughter Morgan Brown, and she has kindly donated the collection for auction at Norwescon. She hopes each piece finds a home on the walls of the fans of the Northwest and is excited to help raise money for Northwest Harvest.
Please joins us Sunday of the Convention in Grand 2 at 11:00 a.m. for the preview, with the start of the combined charity and art show auction at 11:30 a.m.
Norwescon wants to thank the Rolls/Morgan family for this very generous donation.
Here are a few samples of the donated art:
