The Auction: Penland 2014

I'm honored to be speaking this evening at a private screening of a short film I co-produced about the remarkable Penland Annual Benefit Art Auction. Designer Master Silversmith Julia Woodman, who's featured in the film, will also be talking about her collaboration with glass artist Kenny Pieper and the signature piece they've created for this year's auction. The exquisite tea service (above) by Julia, is in the High Museum's permanent collection. The Penland Annual Benefit Auction is held every August at the beautiful Penland School of Crafts in Western North Carolina.
