In a year gone topsy-turvy, one tradition has held fast. Sullivan Goss is pleased to announce the TWELFTH annual 100 GRAND exhibition. Featuring 108 quality works of art for $1,000 or less, the exhibition has become an incubator of emerging talent, an entryway for beginning collectors, a holiday celebration in the art community, and an ever timely reminder that everyone’s life is improved by the addition of original works of art.
The exhibition works will go on sale MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30th at 9:00am. Those who subscribe to the Gallery’s e-bulletin service will get a reminder. Everything will go live on the website at the same time that the doors open. Those who wish to inspect the work in person will be let in between 6-10 people at a time on that Monday. Works will be spaced farther apart to facilitate social distancing and masks are mandatory. Last year, the gallery was astonished to see that almost 40% of the exhibition SOLD on the first day. By the end of the 1st Thursday opening a few days later, the Gallery had almost sold 50% of the works. Obviously, 1st Thursdays are suspended until we beat this novel coronavirus. Collectors and fans are encouraged to plan accordingly.
100 GRAND will feature paintings, drawings, photographs, assemblage and sculpture by emerging and established artists that are priced to sell and sized (for the most part) to fit into smaller spaces. For this year’s exhibition, Contemporary Curator Susan Bush was able to secure work from many of last year’s best-selling artists, but there are many new artists who have never before shown with Sullivan Goss. Those who are new to the 100 GRAND exhibition include: Alyssa Beccue, Sophia Beccue, Wendy Brewer, Kelly Clause, Yumiko Glover, Lynn Hanson, Peter Horjus, Wosene Worke Kosrof, Jordan Marshall, Chris Rupp, Mary Dee Thompson, Veronica Walmsley, Joyce Wilson, Sarah Yerkes.
Often, the gallery will use the 100 GRAND exhibition as a proving ground to see what new ideas, aesthetics, materials, or artists will find an audience. With 100 GRAND, new and younger collectors can begin to acquire and learn about original art from a serious gallery at an affordable price. With emerging artists, collectors get an opportunity to “get in on the ground floor.” For the gallery’s regular roster of successful, mid-career artists, collectors get an opportunity to buy works below market rate. For these reasons, sales are usually brisk. Since its first come first serve, buyers are encouraged to arrive early and to act fast.
