Ellis Paul original Woody Guthrie artwork being auctioned on ebay for WoodyFest
The Woody Guthrie Coalition Inc., organizers of the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in Okemah, are auctioning on ebay an original color pencil/pen and ink portrait of the Oklahoma folk icon as a fundraiser.
Singer-singer Ellis Paul, a mainstay at the annual WoodyFest, created the piece and donated it to the coalition for fundraising purposes.
The 15th Annual Woody Fest is set for Wednesday-July 15 in Okemah, Guthrie’s hometown. The free festival is planned every year around Guthrie’s July 14 birthday; he was born in 1912 and 2012 marks his centennial year. The music legend died of Huntington’s disease on Oct. 3, 1967, at the age of 55.
The ebay auction began Wednesday and continues until 8 p.m. Saturday, July 14 – just before Paul’s performance at the festival.
The framed artwork will be on display during the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival July 12-14 at the Okfuskee County History Center, 407 W Broadway. It will also be on display the evening of July 14 in the media tent at the Pastures of Plenty until the auction ends.
