{CTS} creative thriftshop is proud to announce it’s artist Eric Doeringer will be participating in BAM Sixth Annual spring BAMart Silent Auction. This ten-day event will feature 150 works by over 100 visual artists and designers working in a variety of media and at all prices. The works will be exhibited at BAM, and all bidding is done online. Initiated in 2005, the auction has had the participation of a wide range of both emerging and established artists such as this year’s Honorary Chair Shirin Neshat, James Welling, Dana Schutz, Ida Applebroog, Nari Ward, Deborah Kass, Alex Katz, and simply said, this is a terrific way to support BAM.

The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), an integral center for progressive and avante-garde in Brooklyn, is well known in New York as a premier venue for the performing arts, film, and music.

Founded in 1861, the first BAM facility was built in Brooklyn Heights after the building burned to the ground in 1903. Plans were made to relocate to a new facility in the fashionable neighborhood of Fort Greene, where it still stands tall and ages most gracefully. BAM is one of the most magical places one can visit in New York; it has wonderful pre war features, historic and architecturally striking, sophisticated fixtures and surfaces custom designed moldings and millwork throughout each hall. BAM itself not only sets the stage for the arts but in some ways works in collaboration with it.

It is an honor to participate in this benefit and we do hope that we can count on your support in attending and aiding us in raising the funds needed in this fabulous auction. Bidding is open and live on line starting March 18th, 2010 with some opening bids staring as low as $100.00. There is something for everyone. Best of all, every dollar earned will go to support BAM's dynamic and innovative programs. So click, bid, support!

CTS and our generous artist Eric Doeringer have created a wonderful package of five pieces from the artist’s well known and most successful series “Bootlegs” (2001-2007). These darling knock-offs, mainly on canvas, which depict some of the art markets "greatest hits" and draw from a list of names familiar to anyone who has recently picked up an art periodical. You may have seen Doeringer dragging a suitcase or two along Chelsea's gallery row in New York or set up outside of the latest hot art fair. Regardless, it is likely that you or someone you know owns a Doeringer, and here we are offering a very easy and fun way for you to join the list of his hundreds of collectors world-wide.

The five works are, a Damien Hirst Spot Painting, an On Kawara date painting, a Julian Opie styled portrait, A Richard Prince Joke painting, and a Christopher Wool text painting.

And finally, don't forget to Save the Date for the Silent Auction Cocktail Reception with special guests Andrew Andrew on Saturday, March 27th, from 3-6 PM - NO TICKETS REQUIRE!
