JWFA Artists take Montgomery, Alabama by storm!

We are tremendously honored to announce that two of the Joe Wade Fine Art family of artists, Cynde Roof and Curtis Wade, were stand outs at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts biennial Art Auction in Montgomery, Alabama this past month! (And, we can tell you the MMFA's auction is an enormous undertaking from start to finish...)

Last Fall over a dozen judges, selected by the MMFA board, poured into the gallery and began the daunting process of selecting works of art to be included in their biennial fundraiser. The judges explored the entire gallery and every available work by artists they were considering. The process took almost half a day in Joe Wade Fine Art alone- of course we understood their dilemma with all the great artists we represent! We thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the gallery and love that the proceeds from the MMFA Art Auction go to support the exhibition, education, and acquisition programs of the Museum directly. The Museum is quite proud of the fact that most of the auction lots typically bring more than their value! And, you know that was music to our ears- after all, fundraisers are intended to raise some serious $$$$!

All told, approximately 500 works of art from across the U.S. were up for auction during the MMFA fundraiser- only 35 pieces were selected for the live bidding portion, and you guessed it- both Cynde Roof and Curtis Wade were included in the live auction event. ALL of their paintings sold! Kudos to these fine artists for donating fabulous art for a fabulous cause!

Just In!

Chickens drinking in bars and couples macking on the dance floor, calm & restorative mountain lakes and traffic jams in rural Mexican towns, the inability to read a map but the wherewithal to steal a trillion horses... We might not all have been there but Shana Zimmerman, Roger Williams, and Jack Sorenson sure have! Visit for the entire collection...

ARTfeast 2010- a HUGE success

Huge success! ARtfeast 2010- a weekend of food, fun, fashion, and ART benefiting the art programs, teachers, and students in the Santa Fe Public Schools- has surpassed all expectations. The exact numbers are not in, but almost every event topped past numbers in terms of dollars contributed to the ARTfeast cause...
Joe Wade Fine Art is proud to announce that Ladell's painting "CDell's Little Secret" auctioned for the highest single dollar amount of the entire weekend!!!! We are also thrilled that two of our incredibly generous collectors and dear friends, and attendees of all the ARTfeast events won numerous bids and contributed the most dollars brought at auction to ARTfeast 2010!
Thanks again to all who contributed their time, work, donations, and money to make ARTfeast 2010 a great success and a harbinger of gifts to come for charitable giving in 2010!
