This past Thursday Laura was asked to document the Houston Center for Photography fine print auction. Over 80 pieces of fine art photography were donated to the center and auctioned off by the very entertaining Rick Wester of Rick Wester Fine Art in New York. The auction is HCP’s biggest fund raiser of the year and 100% of the proceeds go to support exhibitions, outreach programs, educational initiatives and the publication of their award-winning SPOT magazine. I am pleased to say this year they met their goal and raised over $80,000!
Artists that donated prints this include Rocky Schenk, Keith Carter, Michael Mazzeo, Will Michels, Amy Blakemore, Susan Burnstine, Fred Baldwin and Wendy Watriss and many other established and mid-career artists.
