Spring Photography Auction
May 14: Newswomen’s Club Spring Auction featured works of New York City photographers
The Newswomen’s Club of New York’s held its third annual Spring Photography Auction on Wednesday, May 14 at the Ukrainian Institute of America’s landmark mansion at 2 E. 79th Street in Manhattan.
Invited guests bid on 50 photographs from prize-winning shutterbugs including The New York Times’ Sofia Perpetua, the New York Post’s Chad Rachman, Bloomberg News’ Carla Gottgens and DNAinfo’s Serena Solomon. Last year’s silent auction was a smashing success, drawing 200 supporters from the city’s media, diplomatic and business circles. Proceeds from the auctions benefit the club’s educational programs.
The auction was revived in 2012 as an annual event, second only in size to the November Front Page Awards. In the club’s early years the spring fundraiser featured work by newspaper cartoonists and comic strip artists. As the industry has evolved with photography overtaking cartoons, the club has chosen to highlight the work of its member photographers and to shooters for city publications.
