RAISE YOUR PADDLE! Miami’s Grand Central holds WYNWOOD ART AUCTION sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida
On November 14th, art collectors and enthusiasts gathered to view and purchase select pieces in hopes of adding a new art to their collection. Collectors not only got the opportunity to view their most desired pieces, but also to bid on them in hopes of their wanted new bundle of joy.
The ambience was set with a smooth old school vibe of music and attractive crowd. A charity event- no reserve auction with proceeds benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida, artists such as Sen2, Jay West, BK, Sonni, Zimad and Bisco Smith showcased their donated art. Bisco Smith spoiled us with a live painting of one of his “Refined Grime” paintings. His black and whites ruggedly brushed his positioned canvas drawing in a crowd of gawkers. And then, the auction began. Hesitant to the idea of an auction,
the auctioneer jeered the art connoisseurs to why they were there. Paddles started rising as great pieces were auctioned off, some reaching their anticipated going rate or more. With a paddle in one hand and a cocktail in the other, collectors outbid each other hoping to take home their decorated canvas. An exciting experience to partake in.
Not particularly a fan of gin? Bombay Sapphire will make you a believer… a gin-iever if you must. Another sponsor of the event, with bartending stations placed, the popular gin gave you a selection of different ways to mix your poison. All Interactively do-it-yourself to appeal to the creative eyes that encased the room.
The Wynwood Art Auction, a must attend event that brought a high energy feel to a gathering of wanting viewers. Thank you to an alluring event to the anticipated Miami Art Basel that approaches us.
