How to move art in Shreveport: match the Montessori Art Auction modus operandi
"The majority of the art purchased was priced $300 and below and was 24 X 30 inches or smaller in size," said Walker, chairperson of the art show.
Some 85 artists participated, said Montessori event organizer Jennifer Moorhead. The night was a boon for artists in another way: "Artists may claim up to 50% of the purchase price and set their own minimum bids at the MSS auction," said Montessori Head of School Angie Day.
