Freeman’s Auction House Previews Fine American & European Paintings & Sculpture – Sale 6/13/10 2PM

As I wrote on my PhillyMag column today, I went to the preview party for the Fine American & European Paintings & Sculpture preview party at Freeman’s Auction house at 1808 Chestnut Street. I used to go to Freeman’s often about 10 years ago, sometimes buying odds and ends from estates, keeping some items and reselling others on EBay. I always enjoy checking out the auction house because they always have some unique item that I would never have the chance to see anywhere else.
Many of the guests were friends, buyers and people from the Young Friends of the Philadelphia Art Museum.Where Magazine’s Brooke Fortier checks out a few paintings.

OMG Geekadelphia and friends: Coming in July to Freeman’s The Darth Vader Project
Dozens of artists recently imagined a different chapeau for Mr. Vader. Together those helmets make up The Vader Project. The “Star Wars”-inspired artworks are set to go to auction in Philadelphia in July, but not before they breathe menacingly in Los Angeles for a quickie, 10-day exhibit.
