Want List: MassArt Auction

This Saturday April 9th, a room full of finely dressed folks will be raising their paddles at MassArt’s 27th Annual Art Auction which supports student scholarships and academic programs. Last year they raised over $1,000,000 (!)

The live auction in the Bakalar & Paine Galleries boasts 36 pieces by internationally renowned artists and regional favorites, as well as over 300 works in the silent auction.

And the silent auction is currently live on Paddle8 with many of the works already selling out in advance of the big night! So in the event a secret benefactor is reading FLUX., I decided to post a few of my favorite auction items.

Ya nevah know.


N.B.: I like many things, in fact, too many things. Therefore, the professional criteria I used to compile this list is based solely on “things I could see on the walls/surfaces of my home”. And while I love Murakami, I am not sure An Homage to IKB 1957 B would play nicely with others in my collection. But maybe yours?


David Hilliard, Transgressors


Bryan Martello, A Spire to Be a Prick

(I mean, the name alone)


Remi Thornton, Blue Stop


Sandra Erbacher, Goat Rodeo

(To be honest, I can’t even see this image, but based on the title I can use my imagination. And I’m a sucker for neon.)


Adam Lampton, Ridge (from the Front Range series)


Wilhelm Neusser, Landscape (1021)


Gregory Vershbow, The Magician’s Assistant


Michele Dangelo, Memory


Molly Lamb, Mississippi Rain


Matthew King, 2015.2.267 & 2015.2.66, 2015


Howard Larosee, Shattered
