Silent auction brings Artisphere to you
Posted 5/12/2012 10:37:00 PM
One of the things that’s great about Artisphere
is that you have the chance to browse through the work of so many artists and bring home something that really speaks to you.
But this year, you don’t even need to be in Greenville
to bring home a piece of Artisphere art! The festival’s online silent auction allows anyone, anywhere, to browse through artwork by Artisphere artists and bid on them online.
People who are in Greenville
can look through the original pieces in the Silent Auction Gallery on Main Street. There’s a computer set up right in the auction tent for visitors who want to place a bid.
The artwork includes pieces by some of the festival’s favorite artists. A woodcut by S.C. artist Kent Ambler shares a message appropriate to the festivities: “Art is an investment better than property or cows.” I loved the misty landscape in Bill Turner’s Versailles II. There’s even a painting by Art in Action artist, Brian Olsen: a large-scale portrait of Johnny Cash.
