High-end art prints and more in auction at Burchard Galleries in St. Petersburg this weekend

ZACK WITTMAN | Times

Have you ever attended an auction? I have, lots of them. Yet never once have I held up my paddle to offer a bid. I think I'm a chicken. Still, I find them fun and interesting and, yes, educational.

If you're auction-savvy, you probably already know about the Sunday event at Burchard Galleries, 2528 30th Ave. N, St. Petersburg, beginning at noon that features some high-end prints by artists such as Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso and Jean Dubuffet along with other objects from the estate of a recently deceased collector. Previews are Saturday from 1 to 6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. at Burchard, one of the oldest auction houses in our area. Bear in mind that this is a high-end event that is expected to attract phone and Internet bids from people across the United States, even around the world.

A more financially accessible auction is Saturday at 8:30 a.m. with a preview at 8 a.m.

You can preview the contents of both auctions at burchardgalleries.com.

And even if you aren't a regular or don't participate, you will be welcome.
