BRATTLEBORO– It’s alluring, funny, dreamy, sobering, moving, amazing, and masterful – all words that describe In-Sight Photography Project’s collection of over 250 photographs and books in the 15th annual Silent Auction and Exhibition. Photographers from the local scene up through international stars have donated work to this annual event that supports In-Sight’s scholarship fund. In 21 years of operation, no student has ever been turned away from In-Sight’s programs for lack of ability to pay.

The auction includes photography for every taste, from classically picturesque landscapes to ponderous abstracts, and for every budget, with some starting bids as low as $10 and plenty of bargains to be had. Renowned photographers such as David Hilliard, Mike and Doug Starn, Susan Meiselas, Rebecca Lepkoff, Carol Golemboski, Mark Klett, Bruce West, Wendy Ewald, Jon Gitelson, Enid Crow, Kirsten Hoving, Emma Powell, Gwen Walstrand, John Willis, Justin Kimball, David Turnley, and Elijah Gowin are exhibiting alongside In-Sight alumni including Zachary Stephens, Evan Darling, Rachael Warriner, Nicholas Sennett, Helen Jones, and Kayla Rice.

Now the final week of bidding frenzy is here, culminating in a public closing event on Sunday, October 27, from 3 to 6 pm, with complimentary food and drink for the enthusiastic collector. Bidding has been open since October 4 and winners can walk away with their purchases Sunday. Participate online at through 5:30 pm on Sunday, or on site through Friday from 1 to 6 pm, Saturday from 12 to 5 pm, and Sunday from 12 to 6 pm next door to In-Sight at Vermont Center for Photography, 45 Flat Street.
