I am a member of the Studio Art Quilt Associates organization. Every year SAQA holds an online auction to raise money to help pay for exhibition, publication, administrative and other costs.
Today is the start of the second week of the auction. How it works is that the bids start at $750 on the first day at 2 p.m. Eastern time. The first person to bid on an item that day gets it. The bids drop every day until it is $75 (it changes at the same time on subsequent days). All the artworks are approximately 12" x 12".
Here's what the bids for Section 2 (pages 2a and 2b) look like:
September 16 at 2:00 Eastern - $750
September 17 at 2:00 Eastern - $550
September 18 at 2:00 Eastern - $350
September 19 at 2:00 Eastern - $250
September 20 at 2:00 Eastern - $150
September 21 at 2:00 Eastern - $75
There is also Section 3 (pages 3a and 3b) that starts next week.
I did not get around to donating a piece this year. But my friends, Kathleen Probst and Linda McLaughlin, both have pieces in this section. Go here to look at all the artworks.
