35 Artworks at The Museum School Sale

The annual sale at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston starts today. I went to the opening night event on Tuesday and snapped some photos for you. We were restrained this year, bringing only three pieces home in an effort to save money, considering we’re pretty much out of wall space. Still, there are great pieces, great deals, and the money goes to a good cause—educating Boston art students. As always, there are works by students, faculty, affiliated artists, and alumni, including pieces by Ellsworth Kelly, Jim Dine, Mike + Doug Starne, Lalla Essaydi, and Tara Donovan.

ARTmonday: School of Museum of Fine Arts Sale

The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Art Sale, featuring works from students, alumni, and faculty to benefit the scholarship program will be held December 8 -11, 2011 at the school, which is right next to the museum. I will certainly post images of artwork I see on opening night, but in the meantime, here are some of our SMFA sale acquisitions from the last several years. Can you tell which are mine and which are my husband’s picks?

ARTmonday: InsideOut Sale at the SMFA

On Friday night I went to the preview party for the annual Inside Out art sale at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, compliments of my wonderful friend and artist Lee Essex Doyle, who co-chairs the event. As always, we found plenty to purchase in various shapes, sizes, mediums, and price points. It is the school’s largest fundraiser,with every purchase going towards scholarships.

There are thousands of fantastic student works and ones by alumni, as well as a few pieces by well-known graduates, including Nan Goldin, Ellsworth Kelly, Richard Serra, Claus Oldenburg, and Jim Dine. I took photos of some of the works I liked (and a couple which I bought). You can look at the Flickr gallery of submissions too. The school is next to the museum. If you’re in Boston I highly recommend stopping by. The date are November 18th to November 22nd.
