More About

The Lab is known for supporting experimental artists, and they've brought this approach to their latest fundraiser. Limited at the Lab is an artist-friendly art auction. Participating artists were given labor and materials by The Lab, and then asked to contribute to a print portfolio or limited edition. In return, they receive a full set of limited editions by other artists in the auction, and a decent chunk of the sale price. Many of the exclusive works hold on long after the viewer has looked away; Tammy Rae Carland's I'm Dying Up Here (Cone Head) speaks to the frustration of the human condition with a solo figure poised atop a ladder, her face obscured by a beige, oblong cone. Gareth Spor's untitled work carries a mellow psychedelia and Ala Ebtekar's painting of a barely visible figure recalls a soldier in deep contemplation. Prints, limited editions, and live auction pieces are also provided by Anthony Discenza, Desiree Holman, Ajit Chauhan, Maggie Haas, Facundo Argañaraz, and Michelle Blade, among others, and the art is priced for collectors at all levels.
