Cocktail reception / Photography Viewing and Silent Auction
Enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while viewing works by legendary masters and eminent contemporary photographers to be offered at the live auction later in the evening. And while you mingle, visit the silent auction to bid on classic photographs by Bob Gruen, Ruth Orkin and William Wegman, as well as brilliant pieces by up-and-coming artists. The variety of works in our silent auction will offer something for every taste, with subjects ranging from famous figures like John Lennon, Ray Charles and Nelson Mandela to iconic New York City images. We are also excited to offer a Child Portrait Commission and our popular Dog Portrait Commission once again this year.
We are very pleased to announce that one of our silent auction artists, Jon Plasse, will be exhibiting his Yankee Stadium series at the Bosi Contemporary Gallery, 48 Orchard Street, from April 9–19. A portion of the gallery sales will be donated to Her Justice.
Seated dinner / Live Photography Auction with Denise Bethel
Auctioneer services are generously provided by Denise Bethel (Sothebys). She will lead the bidding on photographic works donated by renowned artists, galleries and collectors. These carefully chosen pieces will serve as a striking starting point for a new collection or perfectly complement an established photography collection.
