Online Auction Preview

Every two years FotoFest asks artists who have participated in our Biennials, exhibitions, and other FotoFest programs and events to make a donation of their artwork. This enables collectors to acquire some of the most outstanding work that FotoFest has exhibited. The work is largely contemporary but also includes some important vintage classical work. All of the work is selected and accepted by invitation from the FotoFest director and co-founders. The prints are museum quality and important examples of each artist’s work.

This collaboration between the artist donors and FotoFest provides a unique collection of art drawn from all over the world. The twelfth FotoFest Biennial Fine Print Auction features a superior selection of artwork donated by contemporary artists from twenty-seven countries across the world. Many of these artists are also included in the CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES: Looking at the Future of the Planet central exhibition. They were asked by FotoFest to contribute works to the Auction and very generously did so.

FotoFest is grateful for the generosity of the more than sixty donating artists and collectors. Works by the artists contributing to the FotoFest Auction came from Western and Central Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Russia, Canada, Latin America and the United States.

This year the Auction honors the memory of one of Houston’s most treasured citizens, long-time FotoFest supporter, Roy H. Cullen. Without his early support,
FotoFest might never have become the vibrant and beloved organization we know today. Roy was a friend, sustaining FotoFest from its beginning.
