news from orrie king about the auction

Dear Auction Participants, Attendees, and Friends,

Thank you so much to everyone that participated in last week's "Rebuilding New Orleans" fundraiser and silent auction! It was a great success and we appreciate all of your support! I would like to especially thank ALL of the artists, John from the Union Gallery, Amy from, Jim from Vestry Wines, Brooklyn Brewery, and to everyone that bid on the work!!

We still have some of the photographs available for purchase. I have received multiple requests to extend the sale, with the remainder of the work, for those of you who were unable to make it to the Union Gallery for the auction and hanging exhibition last week. Please make a note that we have updated the blog with the status of both the work that sold and that which is still available, along with the minimum auction prices and corresponding personal statements by each artist. Please be sure to VIEW ALL WORK (25 images total), scrolling through "older posts" in the blog. The prints are beautifully rich c-prints, signed by the artists, and most are part of limited editions.

Remember 100% of the proceeds will be given to and each purchaser will receive a 501(c)(3) receipt equal to the amount given. To purchase, or for any comments, questions, or further information, please contact me directly at

Give the gift of art for the holidays, for yourself, friends, and family - this is a unique opportunity to buy original art by these nationally recognized artists, from an outstanding collection of work, available at incredibly reasonable auction prices (and did I mention tax deductible?) and for a GREAT cause - we want to sell!!

Thank you!

Orrie King (photographer and curator)
