About Our Auction
iMPeRFeCT Gallery finds itself at a crossroads as a not for profit, it has been busy activating the cultural life of its community nonstop for almost 5 years; at the same time, it’s proven difficult to sustain itself financially for a while now.
As a result, we need to relocate the gallery at the end of this month, to a temporary space (hosted at our studio a block away at 5547 Germantown Ave.) until we get a permanent one. To this end, Deborah Curtiss, our current exhibiting artist and all around awesome human being, is generously donating 100% of proceeds from the silent auction of her exhibit “Selected Drawings/Paintings from this Century” to the gallery.
We are humbled and grateful for her generosity and this opportunity to raise funds, we’re hoping that you can participate so iMPeRFeCT can reach the goal of at least $5,000 to make it through this transition AND you can acquire a masterful work of art for a fraction of its value. You may also stop by the gallery, see the works and place your bids in person until Mar 18. Only 10 days left for the auction to close!
Featured in the exhibit are diverse works created since 2002: some inspired by figurative sculpture and architecture of Italy, and snowscapes, also included are fragmented figure drawing/paintings, a prefered subject of Curtiss for many years. Here’s a 5 minute video about Deborah’s work: http://www.deborahcurtiss.com/video
We will continue our cultural work, as it is still needed (you’ll still hear from us). We have great hopes for the future and we look forward to seeing other doors open, but even though we know we will land on our feet, we still need your support to make this possible.

About iMPeRFeCT Gallery
iMPeRFeCT Gallery is an alternative art space, dedicated to the voice of the artist. It was founded by Renny Molenaar and Rocio Cabello in 2012, with the intention to activate and facilitate a conversation in the community, this has lead to the creation and presentation of a wide variety of art, in the gallery and in public places.
iMPeRFeCT brings the dreams, debates, and differences of Germantown into an artist-run gallery, the most receptive space for a community to talk with itself.
Half of what we do is curated, producing aesthetically rigorous professional art exhibits by passionate, prominent and upcoming, local and national artists. The other half is generated by our community: readings, lectures, Afro-Cuban drumming, jazz concerts, community meetings, and, most of all, conversations.
At iMPeRFeCT, we listen to artists, we listen to drummers, we listen to each other. We as artists, strongly believe in the transformative powers that the arts bring to our lives, we want to share that experience to inspire action and change.
