Re: “The Exposure Myth

I would go further than the article and say that charitable organizations simply should not hold art auctions at all, even IF they give something to the artist in return.

The problem with art auctions is that they tend to bring prices that are far lower than the actual value of the work they are selling. That devalues art. It devalues the art of the artist giving it and it devalues the the value of art in general when people see things sell too cheaply.

AND, the great irony of these charitable events is that they are often attended by wealthier patrons. Patrons who actually have the means to purchase the art at full retail price should they so choose. By purchasing at a discount, they are getting a benefit that the producing artist doesn't get at all.

Artists and galleries just need to learn to say "NO".
