ADA gets the spotlight at SCOPE Miami!

Kudos to John Pollard for delivering at Miami's Scope Art Fair. ADA was added spice at the top of the art food chain and was noted as such in this recent post on Artnet!

excerpt from the Artnet article:
"For our money, one of the most entertaining parts of the Miami art fest was at the Scope art fair, where Brooklyn artist Daniel Davidson set up a homemade "photo booth" in cooperation with John Pollard’s three-year-old ADA Gallery in Richmond, Va."

Silent Night...

My moles tell me that there is bidding going on. People are darting into the gallery, writing their bid number, looking happily at the artworks they like and then sauntering away whistling.
This is good.
Remember, Saturday, December 16th is the closing reception for Silent Night - champagne, live music, delicious treats from our friends at Comfort and Lift, and waves of bidding.
Call Aimee or Maria at 1708 Gallery to get your bid number (which also gets you 2 free drinks!)

Alyssa Salomon at Aperture in NYC

If you were in NYC on December 7 the Aperture Foundation hosted a program entitled “The Daguerreotype Today”, a panel discussion featuring daguerrotype experts Alyssa Salomon (1708 Board Member), Jerry Spagnoli, Mike Robinson & Mark Kessell. This event was held in conjunction with Aperture’s exhibition & publication of a group of Chuck Close’s daguerreotypes. The discussion centered on how they have adapted this venerable photographic medium, which dates from the 1830's, for contemporary times.

Congratulations to Alyssa on being invited to participate in this lecture series!

Silent Night - Bid now through December 16th...

The big night is approaching - December 16th is the gala reception and final night of the
small works silent auction.
Stop by 1708 this week to register for your bid number and card for
two free glasses of champagne or wine at the party.


We've already had a piece of artwork receive a "KNOCK-OUT" bid!

That means if you love the piece you can purchase it outright instead of bidding.
It's like the "buy it now" feature on Ebay, only better.

Stop by 1708 Gallery or call Maria or Aimee to register for your bid number.
