(CNN)Hunter Biden is expected to meet with potential buyers at two of his art shows after the White House formed an agreement with the gallery to address ethics concerns.
A source familiar with the agreement told CNN that while Hunter Biden is attending the art shows, he will not have any conversations related to the selling of the art.
The George Bergès Gallery did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment, and the White House declined to comment on the record.
CNN reported earlier this month that the White House was involved in forming an agreement between the gallery and Biden to address potential ethics concerns for his pieces, which are priced between $75,000 and $500,000.
Two sources familiar with the sales arrangement told CNN that the purchaser of the artwork will be kept anonymous and neither Hunter Biden nor the public will have knowledge of who bid on or purchased the work.
White House and gallery sources had emphasized complete anonymity with the agreement, both with buyers and potential buyers.
The gallerist, George Bergès, will track offers and purchases and will not share them with anyone, including Biden or his father's administration, a source familiar with the agreement told CNN.
