-CRAIN’S Cleveland Business, by Kristine Gill

It had been in the family for years, handed down from his mother, but when Jeff Young and his wife moved to their new home in Moreland Hills, they realized there just wasn’t a good spot for the Sam Gilliam painting anymore. The same was true for a geometric bronze sculpture by Clement Meadmores.

“I walked in and they said, ‘Well, you’ve accidentally come to the right place,'” Young recalled.

Lot 14, estimated $50,000-80,000, sold for $73,800 including buyers premiumYoung liked the one-on-one consultation he received from Neue Auctions throughout the process.

“From the moment we met, it felt like we were speaking the same language, and if she could deliver in the way she was talking, this would be a great fit,” Young said.

“They said if you adjust down the reserve, you’ll have a better outcome,” Young recalled “We said, you guys are the experts, and we trust you. Once that happened, we just waited.”

The strategy worked. After some painful seconds in which the Gilliam listing stood stagnant, the $50,000 reserve was met with an opening bid and the number crept up slowly after that, finally selling for $73,800. The sculpture sold for $45,510.00. (prices corrected to include the buyers premium)

-I Heart Cleveland

I had the privilege of visiting the rather new-ish auction house in town; Neue Auctions. The team behind this fierce auction house and gallery has been at the forefront of the Cleveland art world for decades, but for the first time are collaborating together as one team. The powerhouse behind this new auction destination includes Cynthia Colling Maciejewski, Ron Greenwald, Ricardo Bernabe and Bridget McWilliams.

Upcycling, restoration promote sustainability

-Cleveland Jewish News

Most people know what recycling is, but how many know about upcyling? “We try to get younger people involved,” Maciejewski noted. “It seems like the younger generation is the one that is finding creative reuse of products. They seem to be a little more aware of not having unwanted items in their life. Even in my generation, we’re the ones who can afford to purchase higher-end pieces. We’re trying to get the younger generation aware of it so they’re not going out there and living a life where they constantly buy something new.”

Breaking ground: Neue Auctions caters to a new generation of antiques enthusiasts

-Freshwater Cleveland

“What separates Neue from the other five auction houses in the Cleveland area is its audience, as Maciejewski and Greenwald are catering to the next generation of enthusiasts. ‘Millennials and women are the fastest-growing segment of art collectors and we want to better reach this growing market,’ says Maciejewski, citing a recent article on artnet. ‘They are the guardians of our shared human story.'”
