MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU--THE VADAR PROJECT














On July 10, the 100 artworks of "The Vadar Project" will be auction at Freeman's in Philadelphia. The works, created by artists from the underground art scene as well as notable pop and surrealist artists will be sold beginning at 12:00 p.m. According to the press release, many of the lots will begin at $1,500. Most estimates range from $3,000-$5,000 with a few lots estimated to potentially reach $8,000-$15,000. Although the sale follows a ten day auction preview in Los Angeles, the exhibit has actually been touring the world since its premier in 2007. The exhibit was curated by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys.

The Vadar Project is a good example of an auction that will appeal to a wide variety of collectors. Those interested in Star Wars and toy memorabilia, pop art and underground collectors, as well as those who collect the works of individual artists.

I could choose to fit the canvas print that I was ordering from wahooart.com to the pattern and color of the wallpaper in my living room. I could search for artwork by subject matter and even predominant colors. Then I customized the frame online because the site allowed me to match the frame style with different wallpapers, one of which looked like ours.
So now have this canvas print by Pierre Bonnard, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT4PD
