Dear Friends:

Here is your chance to OWNitNOW.  This year I have invited six friends to share in the fun of highlighting works in the 2023 auction: John Runyon, trusted art advisor and TWO x TWO co-host; Katherine Brodbeck, The Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art; Vivian Li, The Lupe Murchison Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art, and two savvy art advisors and friends who bring a wealth of knowledge and vigor to TWO x TWO: Adam Green and Benjamin Godsill. John, Katherine, Vivian, Adam, Ben, and I each have our own icon to indicate our picks and we encourage you to take an extra look at our selected works: Howard’s Hidden Gems, Katherine’s Curator’s Choice, Vivian’s Visions, John’s Under the Radar, Adam’s Medley, and Ben’s Stars. Each of our selections will be noted in the online and print auction catalogues and throughout the exhibition at The Rachofsky House.

The OWNitNOW bidding period begins on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, at 12 noon CST, and will close on Friday, October 20, at 12 noon CST. During that time period, the first bidder to place a bid at or above the full retail price wins the OWNitNOW work. Bids placed prior to 12 noon on Tuesday the 10th will be considered simultaneous bids. If simultaneous and equal bids are placed, there will be a bid off between only the highest bidders until a maximum bid wins. If a work sells in the OWNitNOW auction, it will be marked as “sold” during the remaining TWO x TWO events. For further details on how to place your bid, please email Megan Gratch, Director of Auction, meg@rachofskyhouse.org.

On Friday, October 20, at 12 noon CST, if the work is still available, it goes into the silent auction under standard TWO x TWO bidding procedures. All auction winners, including OWNitNOW winners, must collect their items from The Rachofsky House on or before Tuesday, October 24, in accordance with the Conditions of Sale.

Remember that you don’t have to be present at TWO x TWO to OWNitNOW. Just look for the icons in our auction catalogue.

Good luck!
