I decided to go ahead and create an alternative auction for one of the paintings rejected by the Salmagundi Club (see entry below) on eBay. The auction for "Drizzly Morning Downtown" will start this Thursday, March 19, at noon EST, and end on Sunday, March 22, at noon EST. The starting bid is $250 just as it would have been at the Salmagundi. If this goes well, I may try another. Looks like I may be starting my own "Salon des Refusés"!

I dropped off my three painting submissions for the upcoming Spring Art Auctions at the Salmagundi Club. On three Friday evenings, March 13, 20, and 27 @ 8:00 PM, auctioneers will take bids for artwork submitted by Club members. Part of the proceeds will go towards the funding of the Club's offerings: exhibitions, lectures, Artist Roundtables, music performances, etc. Bids start remarkably low: $250 for original paintings, $150 for photography and graphics, $400 for sculptures. I'll know on Monday which (if not all 3!) of my paintings are accepted by the jury. The auctions are open to the public; I'm planning to be there on the 20th & 27th. You're all invited!
