Christie’s Private Sales is running an exhibition of works from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts at 212 Gallery in Aspen, Colorado from August 7 to August 9.

More than 20 of Andy Warhol’s paintings, photographs, prints and works on paper will be for sale with prices ranging between $2,000 and $35,000.

There is no charge to view the exhibition and it is open to the public.

The Aspen Art Museum, a grant recipient of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, will co-host a cocktail reception with Christie’s at the 212 Gallery.

“In 2009 the Aspen Art Museum received our first generous $100,000 gift from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts,” said, Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, Director, the Aspen Art Museum. “It was an extremely gratifying acknowledgment of our mission to provide access to important contemporary visual art from around the globe. The Warhol Foundation continues to provide key funding in the AAM’s ever-expanding role, as a second time recipient, four years later.”
