Hi Folks, maybe the wrong forum, but it's the only one I am on, and I believe it is a big shot in the arm for all you Lith Printers as well as fibre base wet printers out there so I think it belongs here. The Snap Live Auction was held last evening and all proceeds were donated to the Toronto Aids community . The last unoffical count 150 thousand dollars were raised in the Live Auction and the Print Competition silent auction. The Live auction had 60 lots and raised 120K, our gallery(Dylan Ellis Gallery) donated with our artists permission 4 fibre base prints and bids were made to a total of 15 thousand dollars. APUG's own Guillaume Zuili lith print of the strippers was the only print in the show that TD Bank matched the bid and 8 thousand dollars went to this worthy cause. Also included in our lots were Bill Schwab, Kevin Kelly and Kevin Viner and these prints as well raised another 7 thousand dollars. It was wonderful for me to see all these lots up and being bid on and to see fibre base prints not only hold their own but IMHO steal the show with their good looks and obviously desirability to the bidders in the show. I know we all here doom and gloom these days but I would like to thank Guillaume, Bill, Kevin and Kevin for allowing us to donate their wonderful work and see this money go to work immediately to those less fortunate than some of us.
