by the musicians they promoted – and multi-artist-signed items by Mark and his peers. “Mark was both a fan and friend of the artists and is considered one of the greats of his generation, with more than 300 posters to his credit. He’s from the second wave of artists who bridged the gap between the old-school psychedelic artists and the new school of artists who are adding to the ongoing evolution of concert poster art,” said Winter. In addition to poster art, the Arminski offering includes Lot 2812, an aqua-oil painting of fellow artist Audrey Pongracz, who specializes in surreal and dream-like paintings with pop-culture elements. Estimate: $2,000-$5,000.
Lot 1000 is an iconic white suit worn by the late KFC founder Colonel Harlan Sanders and purchased from his wife’s estate. The double-breasted coat and slacks set was tailored by Merton Chesher of Toronto and has a dated 1966 label inside the collar identifying the outfit as being for “COL H SANDERS.” Estimate: $10,000-$20,000.
