F8 and be there -- 2nd Reception & Silent Auction
Cannery Row's first annual "tailgate reception"
The fine art photography exhibit “f/8 and be there” continues its tradition of excellence and innovation with a tailgate reception and silent auction at Cannery Row Studios, Sat Aug 11. 7 - 9:30 pm
Art lovers may provide their own refreshments while partaking of the opportunity to revisit the mood of Sat, Aug 4, f/8 Reception amongst the artists & the fetching photos in the exhibit.
Big deal you say. Well, to sweeten the pot, each artist will auction one unframed (naked) “version” of the art on sale (net total value over $1,000) to the highest bidder—so, if
few people show up, guess who scores a great deal? Other naked pieces by the artists may also be auctioned.
Silent auction bidding is done on a piece of lined paper. All bids for art start low. The next bid must be $5 higher. Just like the great tradition of the Power of Art exhibits.
All art at the f/8 exhibit is currently “sale-priced” with vast potential for appreciation.
At the Aug 11 reception, visitors will have the opportunity to vote for the prestigious “Best Art of Show Award” which will be for a photograph by one artist.
