HILSBOROUGH, N.C., June 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — This spring, Leland Little moved into its new gallery, exhibition space and administrative offices. This new construction, the vision of Leland Little expressed through the design eye of architect Richard Gurlitz, directly connects with the auction company’s existing building, providing 41,000 square feet of auction engine.
Programmatically designed from the onset, the very material and structure of this new gallery responds to and elevates the auction experience. Glass walls, high ceilings, and sophisticated spaces invite collectors to meaningfully engage with department specialists and their carefully curated offerings. From fine art to modern design to fine wine, the strength of Leland Little’s team matches the strength of its new facility. This gallery, the only one of its kind in the region, will serve as a hub for arts and culture in North Carolina.
“We are privileged and excited to announce the opening of our new modern auction gallery,” states president, Leland Little, “This gallery was designed to provide a space for the collecting community – to gather, to learn, to connect, and to grow in their field of interest, as well as to provide an opportunity to buy and sell in a professional, 21st century auction venue, whether digitally or in person.”
On June 11th Leland Little will hold its Signature Summer Auction, featuring a strong selection of fine art, antique furniture, and fine jewelry. Fine Art offerings are led by an oil on paper by Albert Bierstadt (American, 1830-1902) entitled, Nassau Beach and an oil on canvas by Childe Hassam (American, 1859-1935) entitled, The Stairs.
