Calling all artists to exhibit and sell their works for this popular holiday fundraiser. This annual silent art auction is a charitable event in support of other artists.
Objectives: To raise funds needed for the Aird Gallery’s year-round programming (12-13 exhibitions per year) and to increase the visibility of the gallery, the participating artists and organizations, while remaining free of charge to the public.
Format: A charitable exhibition and silent auction of small artworks in two or three dimensions no larger than 24” or 61 cm (framed) in any dimension. A Preview Period precedes the auction night. During the preview, artworks can be purchased if a buyer pays the full retail price.
