Talking about fundraising auctions for visual art spaces, Transformer Gallery in DC tells me that they grossed over $90,000 in art sales and ticket sales surpassing their fundraising goal for the night of their 3rd Annual Transformer Silent Auction & Benefit Party which took place this past Saturday, November 4 at the Edison Place Gallery.
