Auction: The Center for Photography at Woodstock turns 30

The 29th Benefit Auction at The Center for Photography at Woodstock (NY) is set to take place October 6, 2007 at the Woodstock Community Center. To celebrate its 30th year, The Center will reshape its photography auction, which is perhaps the longest-running in North America, as an invitational with 62 select slots offered to well-known artists. Online bidding will also be offered for the first time, so you have a chance to participate in this landmark event even if you are far, far away from New York State.

From the
Center for Photography at Woodstock's website:

"All 62 images will be on view at a preview party hosted by Chelsea's Ricco Maresca Gallery for one night. Tomorrow, from 6:00 - 9:00 pm, collectors can view work by 60 contemporary and 20th century photographers, including Robert Mapplethorpe, Aaron Siskind, Elinor Carucci, Eikoh Hosoe, Mary Ellen Mark, and Larry Fink, to name just a few. The party is free and open to the public."

A preview exhibition of the prints on sale will be open at noon on the day of the auction. Catalogs are available for $35 USD, and are provided to all auction participants. The online catalog can be viewed here.
