Congratulations to T. S. Harris for her outstanding contribution to the California Cool Art Auction (a benefit auction). Her painting, “Horizons” sold for $42,000 in the live auction. We can only imagine the artist’s delight as she watched the online auction’s value increase minute by minute.
From the artist:
Congratulations to the Laguna Art Museum & all the participating artists! The bidding was fierce down to the closing seconds. Horizons went for $42,000!!! I’m going to go cry now- happy tears!
From January 11 to February 6, 2021, the Laguna Art Museum held its 39th annual California Cool Art Auction, for which T.S. Harris’ painting “Horizon” was the cover artwork. Featuring over 100 works by California artists, the museum-curated auction was conducted online via Artsy this year, and featured special virtual content with Aaron Bastian of Bonhams Auctions.
Support for the Laguna Art Museum’s mission of collecting and preserving California art, providing critically acclaimed exhibitions, and enhancing art education for all ages – until the 40th anniversary of this beloved event, and beyond — was the reason for this annual event.
