If you were at the Friends of Hubbell Native American Arts Auction last Saturday, May 8, you knew that it was successful. Wally Blanchard, the chairman of the Friends of Hubbell, sent us a note yesterday with the final results and they are impressive. There were 447 lots in the auction and 357 sold, an 80% sales rate. Total proceeds from the auction were $160,506, which includes vendor booth rentals. Payments to artists were $124,062, or 77% of total revenues.
We would like to thank all of the bidders for their support. If you missed this Friends of Hubbell Native American Arts Auction, you have another chance to attend the late summer version later this year on September 18th. Of course we also have other auctions which benefit a variety of civic and cultural organizations in the Southwest and in Indianapolis, Indiana. Check the Auction and Show Schedule to find out where we’ll be.
