Anyway, over the last month and a half or so I was getting 50 pictures ready for a benefit dinner of the local Independent living center, where the pieces would be about the entire planned silent auction and I get the asking price and they get the rest.
I had my low end presentations, medium ends, and high end presentations out with several new ones I’ve made like Bubble Stones and Rotary Abstractions. Prices ranged from 35 to 100 dollars
I was there at the event downtown yesterday night and not only was it a fancy dinner with 500 people that we got in for free but it was also a rare opportunity to see the real Rain Man on stage.
At the end one of the organizers said I sold 37 pieces out of the 50 I took there including about 4 of the 100 dollar ones. To note that art shows can bring surprises some of the ones I thought were really good didn’t sell and the ultra simple 30 minute image Rythm of Design got about 10 bids where the final price (it had a low end presentation) went from 35 to 75 dollars.
In the end they bought the pictures mainly because the guests liked what they saw, and they were talked about by many people. The Independent living center will soon give me a check for all the ones I’ve sold, but it’s solid indication I made a net profit once again and the event where I’ve sold the most pictures so far.
