In-Sight's 2017 photography auction to wrap up

19th annual benefit for scholarships concludes on Sunday

Posted
BRATTLEBORO — The art of photography has been front and center in the Brattleboro area since Nov. 3. That's the day In-Sight Photography Project brought to town over 250 outstanding works by some 200 international, national and local photographers, mounting its 19th Annual Photography Exhibition and Benefit Auction at its neighboring gallery, Vermont Center for Photography.

Every day since — and can up through 6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 26 — photography lovers the world over have enjoyed a magnificent collection and the chance to bid on their favorites in this 24-hour a day online auction at insightphotography.org/auction2017.

"In-Sight is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017," said Executive Director Jerry Goldberg. "Our commitment throughout these 25 years has been to ensure that every In-Sight program is available to all young people in the community, without regard for ability to pay. Largely through the generosity of the photographers, gallery owners, collectors and just plain lovers of the photographic arts who have contributed to this benefit auction In-Sight has kept that commitment. All proceeds from the auction will go to the In-Sight Scholarship Fund."

To add to the festive spirit In-Sight is running a special 25th Anniversary Photographic Print Raffle featuring museum-quality prints from renowned nature conservation photographer, James Balog and famed Finnish-American photographer, Arno Rafael Minkkinen. The third raffle opportunity is a collection of 10 photography books — the works of Emmet Gowin. Tickets for each raffle are available online at insightphotography.org, $25 for one, and $100 for five. Drawing of the winning tickets is at 6 p.m. on Sunday, at Vermont Center for Photography. Ticketholders need not be present.
