The Fine Print Auction provides a rare opportunity for collectors to access high quality contemporary fine art photography from Latin America, Asia, Canada, Europe, and the United States. FotoFest’s Seventh Fine Print Auction takes place at The Doubletree Hotel, Downtown Houston. FotoFest sponsors the auction with support from Sotheby’s New York and auctioneer Denise Bethel, Sotheby’s Senior Vice President and Director of Photographs. Revenues from print sales at the Fine Print Auction benefit artist programs and the Meeting Place portfolio reviews allowing hundreds of photographic artists to exhibit work and show their portfolios to important museum curators, publishers, gallery owners, and representatives of photo agencies from the United States, Mexico, South America, Australia, Canada, and Europe. Proceeds from Auction ticket and table sales benefit FotoFest’s year-round educational program, Literacy Through Photography (LTP). LTP provides more than a thousand students in Houston-area public schools and beyond with cameras and a curriculum using photography to improve writing and cognitive skills.
