WGBH Art Auction Features “Concord Barn” :: Bidding Open
I was very pleased and honored to have had “Concord Barn,” the painting donated to the auction, featured on the invite to collectors, and the auction catalog. The painting was featured not only on these publications, but on WGBH’s huge outdoor digital banner that can be viewed from the Mass Pike.
The digital banner.
Several contributing artists, and I, were interviewed by GBH’s Joyce Kulhawik. Joyce is a great interviewer, and a comforting presence when you’ve got bright lights and two cameras looking at you. Nervous doesn’t describe the experience, and when it broadcasts, March 23, tune in to be entertained by a wide-eyed, shaky-voiced artist attempting to talk about a painting. Seemed like no big deal, until I heard “rolling.” Then everything went white.
“Concord Barn” in its hanging location in the ‘GBH studio, at the beginning of the Auction Preview Reception. A great event, with many of Boston’s serious art buyers, many artist colleagues, and great food. If you wanted to have in-depth conversations about the multiple story lines of Downton Abbey, this was the party to attend.
The Preview reception marked the opening of bidding for all art items, including “Concord Barn.” If you’d like to view artwork, or bid on any item, I know WGBH would appreciate it. You can bid on Concord Barn here: http://auction.wgbh.org/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=164112 and from there can view all other available art.
Many thanks to WGBH’s Terry Angeli (Art Auction Manager), Peter Shea (Producer), Judy Shulz (Catalog Layout), Jamie Parker (VP for Marketing and Communications), and Larry Powers of Powers Gallery, for the opportunity to participate.
