Heller Ehrman Art Up For Sale at Bonham’s

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?

Dogma, 1999
Brian Burke (Canadian, born 1952)

“Ha ha ha! And you should have seen the employees’ reaction when we just shut that mother down!”

Natural Ziggurat, 2004
Yvonne Domenge (Mexican, born 1946)

“The proverbial Heller screw”

Lover of Time, 2000
Stephanie Frostad (American, born 1965)

“Hmmmmm, I wonder what the little people from Heller are doing today . . .”

    Not sure about Seattle, but we had some Dale Chihuly pieces in the lobby in San Diego.

    Thomas, Thanks for putting together hi-lites of the Bonham show. There are many nice, affordable works. Your ahhhh comments under the above paintings are pretty funny. The “Lover of Time” painting reminds me of women that I often see in yoga classes. They are blond, tall, slender and rather aloof. Who the heck are they? Maybe, they are the woman in the painting. OMG!
