"Artist offers year 2000 work for $40,000 salary"
1999-11-15 until 0000-00-00
PHIL VOLK CONTEMPORARY ART
Fort Worth, TX, USA United States of America

Here's one way of guaranteeing you won't have to worry about the rent in 2000. Phil Volk, the artist behind Phil Volk Contemporary Art, is putting himself up for auction on eBay starting November 15th as your personal artist for one year. The auction will continue for as many weeks as it takes for that one lucky person to bid $40,000+. That one lucky person gets to have everything the artist creates in the year 2000. Ideally it would be in the best interest of all involved that the $40,000 starting bid be surpassed, the idea being that the more money the artist has to work with, the more he is able to do. The reserve is set at $50,000, the extra $10,000 to compensate for overhead. Phil has worked up a budget that can be used as a guideline for bidding or can be discussed further in the final agreement.

The budget break down is as follows:

$40,000 Salary

$20,000 Assistantís Salary

$40,000 Overhead (i.e. studio space, supplies, etc.)

$100,000 Total

As you can see Phil is not looking to get rich from this venture. In fact, his budgeted salary barely meets what he makes at his current position. What he wishes is to spend the year doing what he loves most, creating art. The highest bidder will gain a mountain of work, to include licensing rights, by a very promising, up and coming artist. The highest bidder risks nothing considering a legally binding agreement will be drawn up, agreed upon, and signed by both parties. A minimum of work will be established and documented in the agreement. The artist in turn risks his reputation in the art community if he does not satisfy the terms stated in the agreement. *Artist resume and employment references available upon request. *Media include oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed, collage, sculpture (all sizes and media), photography, contemporary installations, and more. *Great investment for the art dealer or gift for the art collector.
