Bentley Gallery • 4161 North Marshall Way • Scottsdale, Arizona 85251
Join us Tuesday, November 9th between 5:30 and 8:00 pm at The Bentley Gallery in Scottsdale for our Annual INFOCUS Fundraising Auction.
The INFOCUS auction is a great opportunity to see the work of nearly twenty photographers, shop in advance of holiday gift-giving, and show your support for the Phoenix Art Museum’s INFOCUS support organization. This event is targeted at the new collector and bargain hunter, with silent auction bidding beginning at just $150. Historic and contemporary works will be sold and some of the photographers will be attending the event. A range of photographic media, subject matters, and styles will be included so there will be something for everyone. It is a wonderful occasion to get involved with the Phoenix photographic community, and is open to the public – all are welcome!
The auction will feature three framed showcase photographs: an Edward Curtis gravure of San Xavier, a Cole Weston cibachrome of kelp, and a Harold Jones gelatin silver print of an Arizona monsoon sky, with higher starting bids and buy it now prices.
Richard Coda has been photographing since he was a teenager. In college he fell in love with images made with large format cameras. Starting with a 4x5" view camera, he soon moved up to an 8x10" camera and, most recently, has begun working with an 11x14" camera.
While he photographed landscapes early in his career, recently his work has focused on that which has been overlooked, forgotten, or looked at, but not seen. He finds compositions where others see the ordinary, or nothing at all. While concentrating on black and white for most of his career, Richard has found a new love for color, using color as the subject, while still retaining his classical aesthetic for form, line and tone.
