My good friend Christiane Drieling has done it once again. Her Art On 45 art show and auction are underway. The show is now on display, and the auction takes place on the 14th. Next Saturday. Oh man, I am later than I thought, getting this post out.

This is the fifth year, and the show includes a retrospective of the previous artworks. I wanted to share a few photos with you, and I will share some from the auction as well. If you are in the area be sure to check it out. It’s a one-of-a-kind art event!

Thank you Christiane Drieling, and Markus Wobisch!
Congratulations on another fantastic year!

Art On 45 Silent Auction

Saturday night was the Art On 45 silent auction in Ruston Louisiana. The event was held at Rumo’s Barber Shop. All proceeds went to NCLAC’s program at the Boys and Girls Club. This was a juried show. My first!

SOLD $50
People watching.

NCLAC is receiving a $3,300 check for their outreach program with the Boys & Girls Club, and $400 worth of fine art supplies were donated for them. There was no admission fee, but attendees were asked to donate fine art supplies.

The biddings started at $50 for each piece. 10 pieces received one or two bids. 28 pieces had between 3 and 8 bids, and 2 pieces 12 or 13 bids. 10 pieces sold for $60 or under. 14 pieces sold for between $70 and $90. 13 pieces received biddings between $100 and $175. The highest bids were between $240 and $275 for three pieces.

17 artists were new to ART ON 45 this year, and many of them also new to the audience, because those artists were not local or because they have just started showing. 

It was a a wonderful community event. Food and drinks were donated. An aweseome DJ livened things up, and there were small sculptures on display. Posters from all four annual Art on 45 events were for sale as well.
