Collectors of American art find much to enjoy at the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum.
LABOR DAY WEEKEND AUCTION
The Woodstock Fine Art Auction – held annually on Labor Day Weekend and co-sponsored by auctioneer and gallery owner James Cox – features a varied selection of works in a range of prices for the discriminating connoisseur. Woodstock artists are highlighted, but it’s possible to find artists from farther a field, as well. Funds raised from the Fine Art Auction help support the WAAM Permanent Collection, thereby promoting and preserving the artistic heritage of the Woodstock region. Consignments are invited. For more information, call 845-679-2198 extension 102 or email email@example.com.
