Art Market Blog

Auction Preview

Nicholas Forrest over at the Art Market Blog posted a nice article about our Anniversary Art Auction taking place THIS SATURDAY (!!!). While he showcases the James Turrell we have slated as LOT 82, he also mentions that bidders may find some hidden gems in the Margo Sawyer, Sarah Oppenheimer and Anita Dube pieces also up for auction.
The leveling-off of prices at the middle and lower end of the market have resulted in the potential for plenty of bargains. One such source for potential fine art bargains is the upcoming auction being held by the Mattress Factory, a Pittsburgh USA based museum of contemporary art with a primary focus on the exhibition of installation works. Of particular interest is the museum’s residency program which, since it begun in 1977, has supported over 300 artists including the likes of James Turrell, Kiki Smith, Damien Hirst, Greer Lankton, Rolf Julius and Raqs Media Collective. | FULL STORY |
Monday through Friday of this week, I'll be posting a featured daily auction lot containing more detailed information about the artist, they're piece featured in the auction and they're time spent here at the museum. First up later today: Hema Upadhyay.
