Spring Discovery Auction

Our first Discovery auction is live and online. This sale consists of fifty-plus no reserve pieces of historic Indiana (and Indiana-related) art.

It’s all nicely framed and presented — everything is ready to hang. If you’ve purchased artwork from us in the past, you know we’re attentive to presenting pieces.

These paintings and prints are from our existing inventory. And while we offer a broad array of historic Indiana art, sometimes the eclectic, modest pieces get overlooked and they need good homes too!

The auction is timed and online-only. The sale closes Sunday 6/13/21 with the lots ending in succession, beginning 2pm EDT.

You can see everything here: Spring Discovery Sale

Our next auction will be in October, 2021. If you have pieces you are considering selling, please contact us. We’ll do our best to market your piece in a competitive sale!

Pandemic notes
