The Huntington Museum of Art will conduct its 7th Annual Fine Art Auction fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022, at 2 p.m. as an online and in-person event. The works are available for viewing now on the Invaluable website at https://www.invaluable.com/catalog/xeytaamvvn
An in-person preview of the auction items takes place at HMA on Oct. 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The museum is proud to be partnering with Garth’s Auctioneers & Appraisers of Columbus, Ohio, for this event. The works included in the sale were consigned by generous members and supporters of the Museum. “We are offering more than 180 lots in this year’s Fine Art Auction, including paintings, prints, glass, and ceramics,” said HMA Executive Director Geoffrey K. Fleming. “Some lots start as low as $25. You can purchase a work of art online or in-person and support HMA at the same time.”
One of the highlights of this year’s auction is a beautiful figurative work by the noted Ohio artist, Dixie Selden (1868-1935). Selden, who was a native of Cincinnati, was an exceptionally well-travelled painter who studied with two of America’s most esteemed painters, Frank Duveneck and William Merritt Chase. Selden was known for her landscapes, seascapes and portraits of Cincinnati notables. Her portrait of Frank Duveneck is part of the permanent collection of the Cincinnati Art Museum.
