Anyone remember the prices? They were up on the preview list now they're gone.
Yeah. Seems like a practice most galleries have imposed these days - justifiably so in this market, though somewhat annoying - perhaps to disguise the amount of work, or lack thereof, that has sold from a particular show, as some might not pursue a given artist and a somewhat expensive purchase if only a single painting or two has sold for fear of a lack of liquidity down the road. Just my thinking. It could also be argued that by not having the prices publicly available to scrutinize that only a serious collector would contact the gallery for price info, thus potentially saving the gallery time. Still, the exact opposite could theoretically be the case, where it forces everyone wondering the price, even if not even remotely genuine, to get in touch. Clearly it's something I've thought about before, as many galleries I support now adhere to this practice. It also has the affect of making it more difficult for collectors to go back to older exhibits to compare the level of price increase at a current show..which has it's potential benefits for the gallery too.
That said, I quite liked the bulk of the MDV work and was surprised none of the popeyeconography pieces sold. If I wasn't so hurt up for funds, I would've seriously considered Popeye or Brutus. Super strong pieces.
The prices were... 6600 for 24x36s 4300 for 18x24s 3400 for 16x20s
..or there abouts. Not sure about the smaller works.
