All five panels from the Glen Arbor Arts Center’s 2022 Outdoor Gallery exhibition will be available for acquisition. The GAAC is holding an online auction April 25 – 27. The 5-foot square artworks are reproductions of original, acrylic paintings by Carrie Hensel, the Ann Arbor, Michigan, winner of the 2022 Outdoor Gallery competition.
Online bidding begins April 25, 9 am, and concludes on April 27, 2 pm. Opening bids start at $600/panel minimum on these four panels: Revisit The Pines, Birches In October, Wintry Woods, and Twilight On Bear Lake. Note: The opening bid for the Morning Sun On Trilliums panel begins at $500. In Summer 2022 there was an unsuccessful attempt to steal this panel, which resulted in some surface damage: several linear scratches, and two “dents” along the top edge of the panel. Bidding instructions and images of the panels may be found here: https://glenarborart.org/2023-outdoor-gallery-panel-auction/.
The panels are lightweight aluminum finished with a weather-resistant coating. They now hang on the GAAC’s exterior walls, and may be viewed at any time.
