The Alex Cooper Art Department is focused on our mission to continually build new collectors and lovers of art. We strive to offer lovely pieces at entry level prices. That’s where the new Art Discoverers Auction comes in. All pieces have estimates of up to $500 with all bidding beginning at $20. This auction presents a fantastic opportunity to begin (or continue) collecting and living with art.
For the January sale we are pleased to feature a capsule collection from Baltimore artist, Jane Frank. Best known for her innovative and textural abstract rock and landscapes, the collection presents sculptures, illustrations, paintings, prints and other works on paper. It’s a beautiful and important retrospective.
