Kudos: Auction proceeds to benefit ailing artists 

How exactly does a silent auction work? The recently established Art Zone 461 Gallery in San Francisco has made it easy for you to find out, via a silent auction rules section on its Web site, where anyone interested in the work of its artists can not only learn how to bid, but select online bidding as an option as well.

The gallery, launched in June by longtime collectors Steven Lopez and Eric Koehler, hosts a closing event for its month-long auction Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m. at 461 Valencia St.

Titled "A Grand Affair," since opening bids start at $1,000, the fete complements the Art Zone’s current exhibit "Here and Now," which features gallery artists such as Joseph Bacon, Kevin Bean, Adam Cahoon, Jane Fisher and Brian Tepper, plus the work of Art Zone associates including Mark Adams, Paul Wonner and Theophilus Brown.

Twenty percent of proceeds will go to Visual Aid, a local non-profit committed to encouraging artists facing life-threatening illnesses to continue their work. To view works by all artists and the remaining available pieces, visit www.artzone461.com or call (415) 441-8680.
