Top-Notch Art Auction at Boulder Museum


BOULDER, COLORADO.- The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA), a national producer of innovative performing and visual art, once again will host an evening of "art to vie for" at its third annual contemporary art auction on November 11, 2004.

More than 80 original works of contemporary art -- some created specifically for the auction, others donated by internationally and locally acclaimed artists -- will be sold to the highest bidder in both live and silent auctions held from 6:30-10:30 p.m. at the museum.

The event serves as BMoCA’s biggest fundraiser with proceeds to benefit its year-round programs and ongoing success as the only art center of its kind in Boulder County. BMoCA commissions, produces and presents new work in the visual and performing arts on a local, regional and national level.

"We have developed a reputation as the epicenter of Boulder’s contemporary art scene," said BMoCA Artistic Director Brandi Mathis. "The auction helps us continue bringing innovative work to the community."

This year’s auction offers a selection thought to be significant in today’s contemporary art world.

"It’s a juried event, unique because of the diversity of the work. Contributors range from well-known, sought-after artists to emerging up-and-comers," said Mathis.

Media offerings include painting, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry and furniture. Prices range from $100-$6,000.

Longtime Christie’s auctioneer Ursula Hermacinski, named "goddess of the gavel" by Food & Wine magazine, will preside over the lively bidding. "Everyone gets wrapped up in the challenge of the bidding when Ursula has the gavel. She’s freewheeling and entertaining -- it really adds an extra dimension to the auction," said Clarissa King, event co-chair. "We’re lucky to have her again this year. She involves participants and makes it a lot of fun."

"Equally exciting is the action surrounding the silent auction," added King. "Attendees stake out their desired items and compete on paper with one another, bid-for-bid. Over the course of the night, as prices rise, guests strategize when to place their final, hopefully winning, bid."

Artists who have donated work for this year’s auction include: Internationally acclaimed Jane Hammond, Virginia Maitland and Phyllis Bramson; Nationally known Pamela Joseph, James Surls, Chuck Forsman, Gayle Crites, Jeanne Quinn, Buff Elting, Tony Ortega, Julian Lethbridge, Kevan Krasnoff, Todd Siler, Andy Katz, Tracy Felix and Sushe Felix.
