Thank you so much to everyone who attended our benefit auction or bid from afar! Your generosity and interest in fine art photography is what keeps us able to keep writing, publishing, putting on events, and contributing to the world of fine art photography. The auction did well this year. (Read more about it on our blog.) But as always some lots did not meet their minimum reserves and were bought in. So once again we are having a sealed bid auction of unsold lots from this year’s auction.
Please note that our After-Sale Catalog is now visible here.
Absentee bidding closes at 5 p.m. on December 8, 2014.
We will also honor our “End This Auction” feature through the closing date: bid the high estimate and the auction ends immediately and the lot is yours.
Thank you again for your support.
With best wishes for the holiday season,
The Photo Review will hold its Annual Benefit Auction on Saturday, October 11, 2014, at 7 p.m. at Hamilton Hall, University of the Arts at Broad and Pine Streets in Philadelphia, PA.
The event will feature an international slate of photographers as well as a host of Philadelphia artists. In addition, a broad range of 19th-century and vernacular photographs is up for bid. Beginning and experienced collectors alike will have the opportunity to bid on work by historic masters, contemporary photo stars, and local luminaries. Prices will range from $50 to $7,000.
A silent auction, concurrent with the live auction, will feature photography equipment and supplies, inkjet paper, museum memberships, theater tickets, books, certificates for photo classes, etc.
The Photo Review will present Project Basho with The 2014 Photo Review Award for Services to the Field of Photography, at a reception from 6 to 7 p.m. on October 11, immediately preceding the auction.
A preview will be held at the University of the Arts on Friday, October 10, from 11 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and on Saturday, October 11 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., just prior to the auction. Proceeds from the auction, a popular event since 1981, fund such activities as an annual juried competition for emerging photographers. The auction will also feature light fare and drinks and live jazz by Philly’s own Julian Hartwell Trio.
Admission is $20 general, $15 students and includes the fully illustrated catalog. See our shop to purchase your tickets in advance, or you can get them at the door. Buyers may preview the live and silent auction online and place bids here.
