SF Camerawork's Benefit Auction of Photographic Prints

SF Camerawork’s annual benefit auction of vintage and contemporary photographic art will take place on Saturday, December 6th. All proceeds raised from the auction support SF Camerawork's exhibitions and educational programs. This year, The Ansel Adams Gallery has donated two photographs to the auction: Shrubs and Snow by Don Worth and Angels Doing It! by Ted Orland.

Founded in 1974 San Francisco Camerawork encourages emerging and mid-career artists to explore new directions in photography and related media by fostering creative forms of expression that push existing boundaries.

Through exhibitions, publications, and educational programs, Camerawork stimulates public dialogue and inquiry about contemporary image-making in the context of current social and aesthetic issues. Camerawork has presented nearly 400 exhibitions in its thirty years of support and services to local, national, and international artists. Additionally, Camerawork has produced many exhibition catalogs and a publication, Camerawork: A Journal of Photographic Arts. Other educational programs and informational services offered are lectures, workshops, conferences, critique sessions, a reference library, and an active internship program.
