James Surls Experience

Drawing, Sculpture, and Hoe-Down in Colorado

Estimated Value: $36,000

Winning bidder will received a framed drawing, a sculpture, and a trip for two with Director Dennis Kois in Colorado for James Surls’ annual studio party and dinner on July 28th. This is a legendary by-invitation-only art-world event, and at this year’s hoe-down there will be performance art by The Art Guys, the legendary Texas band The Flatlanders and Dickie Landry will play sets. In addition there will be an amazing spread of BBQ and great food. It isn’t unheard of for these parties to include lots of beer and the shooting of guns… sometimes at art.

The two-day trip (including coach airfare, hotel, and food), drawing, and sculpture together are valued at $36,000

Surls’ sculpture Flowers and Eyes is characteristic of his evocative and slightly surreal style. You will own Surls’ latest artwork! This sculpture is 24” x 24” x 24” constructed of steel and wood can be configured to rest on a table or be suspended from a ceiling.
