Fundraiser for artdc.org gallery.
« on: February 05, 2009, 09:59:33 AM »
Dear artdc.org members and supporters:
We are going to hold our first live art auction to raise funding for the organization to defray cost for equipment, marketing and cost for our new space located in Hyattsville, Maryland.  This event is being co-sponsored with Lavania Wohlfarth, Director of Wohlfarth Galleries.

Date:  February 21, 2009 (rain date February 28, 2009)
Time:  5 pm  until 8 pm
Where:  Wohlfarth Galleries-3418 9th Street, NE, Washington, D.C.


Because this is a fundraiser; we are not going to set a reserve on artworks.  The only exception is where an artist can demonstrate global exposure of his/her works at a certain price range.  Please remember that this is a fund raiser and the benefit for an artist who contributes is exposure and more importantly the fact that you are helping the organization.

Find details about the gallery here:
http://artdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=11171.0


Edit: Plans to exchange art!
Here's the deal.  We don't have keys to our gallery yet, and the auction location has no storage.

Both.  I'd love to have an active list of who's going to donate.  Here would be great.

Great initiative. I am ready to donate some work. Do you have an idea of what may sell better (nudes, landscapes, portraits, ..) ?
Please keep me posted !!

Personally I like nudes and landscapes.  There will be a range of people there.  Feel free to bring more than one work.  It should be a very nice event.  Very classy.

I'll donate a piece.  If it sells for $7, just tell me it's entered an important collection.

Sounds good Jesse.   I have at least 1 painting I can contribute.  I ran by the Wohlfarth Gallery last Sunday, but they were closed.  Can we drop off there?  I see they are right across the street from General Brooks Tavern and Catholic University CUA metro stop on 9th Street NE.  I parked in the General Brooks Tavern parking lot, which was pretty open on a Sunday afternoon.  If the drop off is this Friday it would be nice to know the hours so I could plan.

I will post details on the drop off asap. 
Please do feel free to email me for details.

Evidently the gallery has no space to store the art, so we are planning an alternative as I type!

Excellent!  My goal would will be to have a drop off in MD as planned on friday.  And for those who can't make that, I'll have a Virginia location too.
