Works by Central Indiana contemporary artists, including Amy Falstrom, James Wille Faust, Linda Adele Goodine, Scott Grow, Emma Overman, Artur Silva, Betsy Stirratt and Jason Zickler, will be showcased in a special art auction organized by Christopher West and Mindy Taylor Ross on Friday evening, June 25 from 6-9 p.m. at Dan Ripley’s Antique Helper (2764 E. 55th Pl.). The auction includes lots cosigned directly from artists as well as pieces from the secondary market and also includes a mix of local, regional and national artists. West and Ross hope the auction will help support the growth of contemporary art offerings in Central Indiana – not to mention the region’s struggling arts economy. Five percent of the hammer price of each artwork sold will benefit the Contemporary Art Acquisition Fund at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. There will be a preview reception on Thursday night, June 24 from 5-8 p.m.
