MOCA GA hosts annual art auction fundraiser Oct. 29-Nov.9
MOCA GA has curated fantastic auctions attracting collectors from all over the world, including but not limited to North Carolina, Massachusetts, New York, Italy, and Hong Kong.
Using Paddle 8 as a platform, MOCA GA places the work of Georgia’s most notable artists in an online auction that is accompanied by a preview exhibition and culminates with a special Final Bids VIP Party that is attended by a list of invitation-only guests and a select group of arts patrons.
MOCA GA’s invitational auction is the only one of its kind and helps to further MOCA GA’s mission to place Georgia artists in a global context and promote the visual arts by creating a forum for active interchange between artists and the community.
The online auction will run Oct. 29 through Nov. 9 and will be on view in the lower level galleries of MOCA GA from Nov. 2 through Nov. 9. Fast, easy online bidding with Paddle8 Auctions makes it easy to keep tabs on your favorite works of art throughout the auction (www.Paddle8.com).
This year’s art auction features works by 91 Georgia artists including: Whitney Wood Bailey, Lillian Blades, Lucinda Bunnen, Kevin Cole, Don Cooper, Sarah Emerson, Bojana Ginn, Michi Meko, Rocio Rodriguez, Jerry Siegel, and Cosmo Whyte.
