Silent Auction- my first sale of artwork!

So today is World AIDS Day, so to remember all the lives that were lost to this terrible disease, and to celebrate the progress that is being made in research, there was a Gala/Ceremony in Bloomington, IN where I go to school. I’m a member of the Indiana University Photography Society, and we were invited to donate photos to a silent auction. All proceeds from the silent auction went to Positive Link, the HIV/AIDS clinic in Bloomington.

We weren’t really sure that we would sell much, if any, photographs, but it turned out pretty well! All three pieces I had in the auction were sold, and one of mine had the highest bid out of all photographs! It may seem trivial, but I was very excited about it. I have never sold a piece of artwork before, so today has been an eventful day. It was also wonderful that all proceeds went to the AIDS clinic; I was glad to donate artwork to such a wonderful cause!

Hopefully my first sale will stir up a whirlwind of selling…but probably not. We’ll see where I’m at in a few years!

These are the photographs that were in the auction:
