For the past 18 years, art lovers and collectors have grown accustomed to the Santa Monica Auctions’ annual event. This yearly outdoor live auction has become a fixture in the now ever popular Bergamot Art Station, providing an exclusive low cost alternative to acquiring collectible works by renowned artists.
Showcasing mid-career and established Los Angeles artists of all mediums including painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, multiples and prints, Santa Monica Auctions has been independently owned and operated for 26 years.
Photographer and director Michael Grecco, (who has attended this LA ‘art happening’ for the past 6 years) says, “I love the auction because of the eclectic mix of art and photography.”
The auction takes place on Saturday, June 9th at 6:00 p.m. & Sunday, June 10th at 1:00 p.m.
