Singer also opens month long exhibition of his work in New York

Ryan Adams has auctioned off a collection of his original artwork for charity.

Held at Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York, the paintings and collages were auctioned off with proceeds going to the Housing Works Bookstore Café, an AIDS and homelessness charity.

Three weeks prior to the opening of the exhibition, Adams became Morrison Hotel Gallery‘s first artist in residence, creating additional canvases for the auction.

The paintings will stay on display at the gallery for public viewing until October 15.
