Normally I wouldn’t sit here and trumpet this over and over again. I’d be pacing around the gallery, watching as my artworks get examined and considered by potential art buyers, while I try to not act like a helicopter parent.
But this is 2020. The pandemic has replaced the customary one-night bidding event, and now my artworks are spread across two galleries, with online bidding almost finished.
So if you want a chance to claim any or all of these pieces … don’t wait. Bidding ends very soon.
Four of my artworks that are in the “Charity Season” are now available for bid online, so whether you’re from the Capital District or outside of the area, now’s your chance to acquire one of my artworks.
So the first one available for bid is Washington County, 2:30 A.M., an acrylic print of my shot of the Milky Way and the Rexleigh Bridge. This is part of the “An Artful Evening” gala at the Albany Institute of History and Art, which this year honors my fellow college classmate and all-around good person Amy Biancolli for her work in the art world.
Here is the link to bid on Washington County, 2:30 A.M. Bids can be made in person; the artwork can also receive silent bids online. The silent auction will go live on Wednesday, October 28 at 10:00 a.m. and will end today at 12:00 noon. A portion of the final price goes to the Albany Institute of History and Art. Bidders living outside the Capital District should make arrangements with the Institute for pickup.
The other three artworks are part of my 10th consecutive submission into Historic Albany Foundation’s “BUILT” charitable fundraiser. The event is being physically hosted at the Albany Woman’s Center at 725 Madison Avenue.
All three of the artworks in BUILT will remain up for bid until November 7, so bid early and bid often.
Artwork #1 is my light-up Empire State Plaza fireworks photo, which operates with flashing lights when it hears any sounds. It currently has no bids, and bidding on this piece closes on Saturday night.
Artwork #2 is my Bluetooth-enabled Mohawk Drive-In speaker, which will also include the Bluetooth amplifier. This artwork also is waiting for a bid. Your bid could break through and you could claim this piece very easily.
Artwork #3 is my Dream Window of the RCA trademark dog Nipper, as he would be seen from North Pearl Street (complete with buildings and scaffolding). Now this one has bids on it, and there is a bit of a bidding war. That being said, are you going to let a bidding war by two other people rob you of claiming this artwork?
Again, don’t let the opportunity to own any of these artworks pass you by. Make your bid now, and that item (or items) could be YOURS!
(Oh, and you’re helping the Albany Institute of History and Art and/or Historic Albany Foundation with their charitable endeavors)
