L.A. Contemporary Gallery in Culver City hosted a benefit, one-night only, mixed-media, silent auction on May 17, 2008. The list of artists was impressive: John Baldessari, Robert Rauschenberg, Tracey Keilly and Kathleen Buckley on the art side of things.
Photo had its own tiny little wall, but a really interesting mix of stuff: Mitch Dobrowner had a (smaller) landscape of the city, Ray Potes of Hamburger Eyes threw in with a cool photo that hung center-wall and I had a photo of some little girls and a dog near a dilapidated pool in Malibu. I’m happy to say the print sold, with most of the proceeds going to a charity dealing with suicide prevention.
Dandy Noel curated the show, and did an amazing job.
