BA Auctions (int'l art galleries) is no longer operating as of recently, seized of art auctions on board P&O aussie ships. Fact! unfortunately they have had customer fullfillment issues and problems with qualified A/D's and proper stock to sell.
The company is in funding trouble or otherwise not making enough revenues to cover cost of operating and many staff have been laid off in the last month. I was a formal auction manager with the company until I resigned at end of June this year. I have no malice against them personally or Ira Shore, I left on my own but it seems that the business is falling apart or restructuring into something else. Many formal BAA staff unemployed from the Florida offices.
