Silent Auction to support The American Folk Art Museum

This Thursday (tomorrow, April 7th, 2022), The American Folk Art Museum is hosting its 60th Anniversary Benefit Gala at Gotham Hall. In celebration of the anniversary, they have organized a silent auction that includes works by artists such as Dan Miller, James Castle, and Jimmy Lee Sudduth, as well as many other artists and additional objects such as quilts, textiles, folk art furniture, and more.

Below is a sample of some of the items being offered in the Silent Auction. Clockwise, from top left: “Untitled,” 2016, by Domenico Zindato, which is a soft pastel, ink, metallic ink and acrylic art work on a dried Bauhinia monandra leaf; next, an Indian Tapestry, artist unknown, textile measuring 103 x 82 inches; bottom right, “Shadow Self,” 2003, an editioned aquatint measuring 6 x 6 inches by Joe Coleman; and bottom left, “Untitled” by Keith Goodhart, a 23.25 x 16.5 inch framed drawing with ink, marker, crayon, and colored pencil on paper. These are just a few of my own favorites from the total of 47 items up for auction, check them all out here.
