His trademark plaid suits have been compared to everything from a 1970s couch to Santa's jolly outfit. Now, as Swann's President Nicholas Lowry has been making the rounds of recent benefit auctions, he has added a faux bejeweled dollar sign necklace for a dose of bling—and humor—at these charitable affairs.

Most recently, Nicho, along with George Lowry, Swann Chairman, and Todd Weyman, Director of Swann's Prints & Drawings department, conducted a live auction at the Garrison Art Center on Saturday, May 14th as part of their bi-annual Artists on Location fundraiser on the banks of the Hudson River.
Nicho will also be the auctioneer at the Madison Square Park Conservancy's The Spring Party on May 18th. The invitation-only fundraiser benefits the Conservancy, which includes cultural programs like the newly installed 44-foot high sculpture, Echo, by Jaume Plensa.
