Concord artist finds $20,000 painting among Goodwill deals
Beth Feeback, an artist from Concord, found the deal of the day. Perhaps of her lifetime.
The News and Record of Greensboro reports that Feeback bought a painting at a Goodwill store for $9.99.
The painting, 1966 painting by abstract artist Ilya Bolotowsky, is now awaiting a September auction at Sotheby’s in New York.
From the News & Record story:
Sotheby’s has given it a conservative auction estimate of $15,000 to $20,000, a spokesman confirmed.
“I am kind of nervous,” Feeback said. “I feel like I have a lottery ticket that is going to be worth something, but I don’t know how much.”
“If we were comfortable and had plenty of money, I might have saved it until the economy was better,” Feeback added. “But right now, we just need the money. And it’s also nerve-wracking to have something of that potential value in your house.”
