evo to auction original Eric Pollard oil painting to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters
From evo.com — Seattle, WA (Nov. 14) — Action sports and lifestyle clothing retailer evo will auction an original oil painting which has been generously donated by professional skier and talented artist Eric Pollard. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound.
The painting, The Calm Before The Storm, is an evo-exclusive original painting by Eric Pollard. The painting commemorates evo’s partnership with Pollard as well as years together skiing and sharing the love for it. Both evo and Pollard are working together to keep skiing progressive, fun, and accessible for all. The paining is oil on canvas and measures 36″ X 24″.
Pollard’s skiing inspires his art and vice versa. To that end, he started Nimbus Independent, a successful film company, and his artwork has been featured on several of his sponsor’s products including the Line Mr. Pollard Opus Skis, Dakine Eric Pollard Team Heli Pro Backpack and the Bern Baker Audio Hard Hat, among others.
Big Brothers Big Sisters provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. It is their vision that all children achieve success in life. Their goal is to help children avoid risky behavior and cope with socio-emotional and self-esteem issues. They partner with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving higher aspirations, gaining confidence to overcome challenges, improving relationships with family and peers, and obtaining educational success.
