Red Dot art sales at Blue Star soar past $100K


A few sales are still pending, but we just heard that Blue Star Contemporary Art Center has sold over $110,000 in art works at this year's Red Dot Art Sale. Half of that amount--$55,000--goes to the over 60 artists who participated this year bringing 125 works of art to last Wednesday's gala and sale. The remainder of the banner-year sales go to support programming at the Center. Not just a high-roller event, there were plenty of artists on hand as well.
