Art Auction Consignments Now Being Accepted


Lexington, Ky. --- Would you like to consign a work of art, an equine antique or rare book to the Museum’s 2006 Art Auction?  If so, you need to start the process now!  After 2005’s history-making auction, which saw a George Ford Morris oil bring a record price of $135,000, requests to consign to this year’s event are expected to increase.


This is a consignment auction – the Museum is not asking you to donate your work, but rather to consign and sell it.  If you would like the Museum to consider an item for auction, you will need to contact the Museum and request a Preliminary Review Form.  The Form must be completed and returned, along with an informal snapshot of the item, no later than March 31, 2006.  If your item is selected to be included in the auction, you will be sent a Consignment Contract.


The auction is open to artwork in any medium as well as rare books, unique antiques and historic artifacts.  A four-color catalogue that will set the tone for the sale will be printed and distributed and the auction will be marketed in the industry’s trade publications. This auction is fast becoming the preferred venue where artists, collectors and enthusiasts go to purchase and sell Saddlebred artwork in all media.  The response to the last two auctions confirms there is broad interest in such an event.


This year’s auction will take place during the Lexington Junior League Horse Show on Saturday July 15, 2006 at 12:00 Noon in the Red Mile’s Round Barn.  A Preview Party will be held from 11:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon in advance of the sale.  An online catalog of last year’s auction and sales prices can be viewed at the Museum’s website  Give Tolley Graves a call at 859/259-2746 ext. 304 with any questions you may have about this special sales/marketing opportunity.
