Red Dot Report: September - December 2010

by Jeriah Hildwine and Stephanie Burke

It's funny how time flies! The past few months have been a whirlwind of activity in the land of Stephanie and Jeriah, between teaching new classes, curating shows, starting new projects, and just generally being busy little beavers. In the midst of all this madness, we have still been going to shows (though not as many as we hoped), and still looking for those little red dots. Here it is, Red Dot Report #4.

As always, the images below present only a tiny sliver of the works being sold in Chicago every month. This report is based on red dots we see (and the capability of shooting them, at least once we've missed dots because we forgot the camera). Have a look at the slide show to see what we did manage to capture. It is also important to know that 95% of the time, these images are from opening night of the exhibition, meaning these images only represent pre-show sales. 

In the coming year, we are going to be re-vamping the Red Dot Report, maintaining it as a monthly ATC column. It will still be based primarily in dots we see in our crawling adventures, however, if you represent a
gallery and would like to participate, please email us at  Please include any information you would like
listed, including an image of the work, the artist's name, your
gallery's name, year, size, medium, and (optionally) the wall or list
price.  We respect the privacy of collectors, galleries, and artists
when it comes to any difference between the wall price and the actual
sale price.  We respect the anonymity of collectors; however if a public
collection such as a museum acquires a piece and wishes to announce it,
we will gladly publish that information.
