Three hundred and sixty-eight art quilts, each measuring 12" x 12", are up for auction in this year's SAQA Benefit event. Starting tomorrow, September 18, prices will begin at $750 US, then be reduced daily until the end of the week, when $100 bids will be accepted. The whole event begins again for a second week with Batch #2 (starting September 25), and then again on Week 3, starting October 2.
Three batches, three weeks, six different price points. and an infinite variety of subjects and styles. To learn more about the auction, please visit the website.
Though I'm not a contributor this year, I will be following the action closely. It's exciting to see just how quickly the works of my favourite artists are snapped up. In fact, eleven works have already been sold for a premium $1000 each!
