A Benefit Auction to Remember at Rosewood
By Hannah Jarmain
Sunday, February 8 will mark our third annual Contemporary Art Auction at Rosewood. This auction is a fundraiser for the Children’s Art Foundation, which teaches Literacy through Art to more than 200 children in the surrounding campo of San Miguel.
To benefit the Children’s Art Foundation
Sun, Feb 8, 12pm
Rosewood San Miguel
Nemesio Diez 11
Tribute to Toller Cranston at 2pm
For our auction we have 100 wonderful artworks to please the most experienced collectors. Fifty pieces will be presented in the silent auction, which begins at 12:00 pm and closes between 1:30-2pm. Fifty more pieces follow in a live auction with the charming and astute Anado McLauchlin presiding as our auctioneer.
The auction will feature the top tier of established Mexican, International, and Latin American artists. Unlike previous years, this year’s auction catalogue lists the suggested retail price, which is not the minimum bid prices as in previous years. Please note all auction prices are in US dollars. Art dimensions are in inches. Payments accepted in cash, Visa or Master Card and checks. We also offer an opportunity for you to bid from home, wherever home might be. There is no reason for any art lover to miss this event even if you are recuperating somewhere in the South Pacific! To participate in absentee bidding, simply download the digital catalogue by entering the following link and follow the instructions. Online bids are closed as of noon Feb 6. Should you wish to participate in the live auction from afar, you can do so by Skype. www.kalendarte.com/artprint/2015/febrero/LiveAuctionSubastacatalogo2015.pdf
