Art auction benefitting Redux boasts ‘really good’ deals on more than 80 local works

Redux Contemporary Art Center is hosting its 13th annual art auction this week with more than 80 pieces of original works created by top contemporary artists in Charleston.

The auction is the nonprofit art center’s largest fundraiser of the year that helps support a range of its programs, from administrative costs to the price of hosting its many art exhibits throughout the year. The bonus for bidders, according to executive director Stacy Huggins, is “the opportunity to get a really good deal” on top-notch artwork.

All the resident artists of Redux,including Teil Duncan, Karen Ann Myers and Todd Anderson, contribute works each year as part of their agreement to rent affordable studio space at the art center on St. Philip Street. Other local artists, or “friends of Redux,” such as Megan and Robert Lange and Lese Corrigan, have donated some of their works as well.

At the event, Cannon Green will provide hors d’oeuvres, and Cathead Vodka and Holy City Brewing will serve the beverages.

First, there will be a live auction of art, followed by a silent auction that will include art, plus other items such as a dinner package from FIG, hand-crafted guitars by Zach Fasola, private art classes and more.

When: 6 p.m. Thursday

Where: Cannon Green, 103 Spring St.

Price: $40 for members, $50 for nonmembers
