Phoenix Art Museum hosted the ninth annual INFOCUS PhotoBid Gala Art Auction on Nov. 16. The live auction and fundraising event benefits exhibitions and educational programming at the museum. Sponsored by INFOCUS, the museum’s photography support group, the auction invited collectors to bid on signed, limited-edition photographic prints donated by photographers from Arizona and the United Sates, as well as a selection of photography books. The featured works were on display from Oct. 21 to Nov. 15 prior to the event.
The photographic works were selected by Rebecca Senf, Ph.D., the Norton Family Curator of Photography at the museum and the chief curator at the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson. Featured artists included Kōzō Miyoshi, Hiroshi Watanabe, Kate Breakey and Mark Klett.
As he has each year, Richard Laugharn, owner of Fine Art Framing, donated the framing for auction pieces.
