Redux Art Auction brings out the artsy bidders 

The claws, and the paddles, were out

The artsy and fashionable came out for Redux's Annual Art Auction on Saturday at the Charleston Center for Photography. The older, legitimate art buyers and young, freeloading hipsters mixed and mingled over their shared love for designer eyewear and local art. Social, Total Wine, and Palmetto Brewery provided alcohol, while the appetizers were coordinated between Black Foot Catering, Sermet's Corner, Pane e Vino, Sugar, and D'Alessandro's. The food was a mix of pizzas, sandwiches, and crab cakes, along with the Sugar gingerbread cookies that went like hotcakes. The chairs in the auction area were few, so you had to grab one early. Many of the artists were in the crowd, including local favorite Nathan Durfee, whose Panda and His Tardy Redemption went for $360. Many women at the event sported flower clips in their hair, which turned out to be Anne Trabue Watson's designs that were up for bid. The most expensive piece of the night was Jonathan Brilliant's Untitled metal vase, which sold for $600. The Charleston Center for Photography space was somewhat small for the amount of people attending, but it also would have been more difficult to hold the auction in the winding galleries of Redux.
