I took AJ, a young man that I work with, out to the The Aljira Fine Art Auction 2010.

The auction is one of the gallery's fund-raisers and showcases the work of local and regional artists. AJ is not what you would call a fan of the arts, so we spent a lot of the night discussing the pieces on display. By the end of the night, while I wouldn't call him an aficionado, there were some pieces that he would have purchased. Although contemporary art prices are a bit out of collective reach. ~ksp
