Today we announce the launch of “The Writers’ Auction,” our fall benefit auction running on Paddle8 through October 23, 2014. The money raised will be used to take our two part-time writers on full-time—making it the most important auction we’ve launched to date. This means more resources to edit artist essays, in-depth interviews and reviews, and daily news coverage. This is flagship AFC content, and it’s the best art writing you’ll find anywhere on the web.

We’re still flying by on September’s openings, but by the time the weekend rolls around, we’re gonna see some signs of new art life. Throughout the week, there’s a heckuva bunch of artist talks and lectures. We just might jump out of our panda costumes to attend a few. By the time the weekend rolls around though, we’ll have some hard choices to make.
