Wondering how to get the jump on a silent art auction? Here’s some advice: go to a silent art auction preview. This is especially true with Locust Projects’ Annual Spring Fling auction, an absolute favorite on the local arts circuit. Curator extraordinaire Claire Breukel is turning the main event’s theme—a riff on Truman Capote’s 1966 Black and White Ball—on its head with the fundraiser exhibition titled Making It Grey. A selection of 29 works range from drawing and painting to photography, prints and sculpture, and explore the twilight where ideas, process and materials aren’t measured in absolutes. The Locust Projects silent art auction preview from April 1 to 7 is a golden opportunity to learn about the artists, examine their work in-person, and get a headstart on bidding.
