Ackerman Modern: Pieces by Evelyn and Jerry Ackerman in the May 23, 2010 Auction

Evelyn and Jerry Ackerman are the best! Not only do we love everything they have produced and inspired, we think they are just great people. Last time I wrote about them was when we had a missing tile in the mosaic panel titled “Puerta”. Just as an update, Jerry fixed this for us with a spare tile he had in his studio, so “Puerta” is good as new! In addition to this mosaic panel, we are also offering an Evelyn Ackerman wool tapestry and a Jerry Ackerman bottle with stopper. If you haven’t seen the new Ackerman Modern website, you absolutely must, it’s amazing! Here are all the Ackerman pieces we are offering in the May 23, 2010 Modern Art & Design Auction:
