Art For the Sake of Artists 2011

By Peggy Roalf   Monday March 21, 2011

“Buy what you love” is the advice often given to new collectors by art connoisseurs. And now is the time to take action on this good advice because over 200 artworks by established and emerging U.S. and international artists will go on sale Thursday, March 24 at Marianne Boesky Gallery to benefit theRema Hort Mann Foundation

This collection of works on paper, collages, mixed media pieces, and photographs are all the same size: 8-1/2 x 11 inches. They are hung salon style in the grand space of the gallery – and will remain anonymous until sold. Every piece of art goes for the same price – on an hourly countdown as follows:

From 6:30-7:30: $500

From 7:30-8;30: $250

From 8:30-9:30: $125


Three works of art included in theBuy What You Lovesale at Marianne Boesky Gallery to benefit the Rema Hort Mann Foundation..

Each work is exhibited online; to view the list of artists and the art contributed to date, please visit the website. More pieces are being added every day, so stay tuned. RMHF will tell you the artist’s name at checkout. So for just $20 at the door, you will spend a fun evening with likeminded people and help raise money to support travel grants for cancer patients undergoing treatment and individual grants for emerging visual artists.

The Foundation is looking for some ambitious volunteers to help hang the show on Wednesday, March 23, and help run the sale on Thursday, March 24.
