A faithful reader and ex-Heller employee from San Diego (who is still without employment!), alerted us to the next sale of artwork from Heller Ehrman LLP taking place at Bonham’s in San Francisco on 8 February 2010.
Here is a link to the catalog with all 340 lots and while looking through the works I was able to remember some of my favorites from the San Francisco office. I also see several Dale Chihuly works which, I assume, were in the Heller Seattle office.
Some works just are begging to be bought and I am seriously thinking that either a visit to San Francisco is in order (I have a thing for paddles – auction paddles that is!) or I might sign up to bid over the phone.
And other works just seem to describe what transpired at Heller, don’t they?

Stephanie Frostad (American, born 1965)
“Hmmmmm, I wonder what the little people from Heller are doing today . . .”
