I love the way you put up and show the art for the auction. But have you ever thought of having a section just like it on the oppisit side of the room for "cash and carry" art? Basically art that is for sale only at a set price, and if you pay for it now you can take it with you now. Or if the buyer will allow put a sold sticker/sign on it and allow people to see it? that might help some of your starving artist.
