CMA Auction 038ArtistsinAuction

If you ever wondered whether an art auction was a good way to sell art, you would have clearly found your answer had you attended the Children’s Museum of the Arts 5th Annual Art Auction last Thursday.

With more than 40 pieces up for sale, both through live and silent auction, the event was a stellar opportunity for collectors to purchase a wide array of fabulous Contemporary Art by both emerging and established artists.

Works showcased included a Farah Fawcett Polaroid by Andy Warhol,  a William Wegman dog portrait, and a Dusty Boynton mixed media piece, among many others. Also for sale was a favorite of ours by Antoine Verglas.

Plus, the event was a blast, drawing in hundreds of socialites to the hosting gallery of Phillip’s de Pury and Company in New York City’s Meatpacking district.

And most importantly, the auction brought in a tidy sum, all of which will go towards expanding CMA’s outreach programs for underprivileged children.

ArtistsinAuction

ArtistsinAuction is proud to announce our newest affiliation – Children’s Museum of the Arts in lower Manhattan.  Not only is CMA one of the oldest children’s art museums in the world, it is one of the most respected.  We plan to donate a portion of all artwork sold in our online auctions so that the museum may further their goal of “celebrating the artist in every child”.

CMA espouses to give all children and families access to the creative tools that promote self-expression and esteem through both the visual and performing arts. The organization offers hands-on art programs taught by trained, working artists-in-residence, and children’s work is featured in an on-going exhibition both at the museum and online.

We are so pleased to support a program that encourages emerging artists at the very start of their creative  development.  For more information on the CMA or to participate in any of their programs, please visit www.cmany.org/
