"As some of you may be aware, in 1977 I founded the not-for-profit Center for Photography in Woodstock. I’m proud to say that it’s still going strong after 39 years. Benefit auctions continue to be an important and primary method of fund raising for small arts organizations and ours is no different. I’m very pleased to announce that this year the Center will be honoring Nathan Lyons and Bill Mindlin at the event and that we’ll be holding it for the second time in New York City at Affirmation Arts.
I hope that you’ll be able to join us on October 13th to help ensure that the Center is able to remain a venue for emerging artists as well as fostering and promoting discourse about the medium. If you're unable to attend there are other ways to support.
I look forward to seeing you all there."
This year's auction includes a stellar line-up of sixty photographs, including leading examples of early, modern and contemporary photographs. Artists include Berenice Abbott, Amy Arbus, Dawoud Bey, Ted Croner, Harold Edgerton, Lewis Hine, Pixy Liao, Vivian Maier, Joel Meyerowitz, Jeffrey Milstein, Matthew Pillsbury, Manjari Sharma, Weegee, and Geordie Wood.
