OPENING RECEPTION: 2018 Benefit Art Auction Exhibition
March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
2018 BENEFIT ART AUCTION: Saturday, April 14, 5pm
Established by artists in 1981 as a way to fund a not-for-profit gallery, the auction provides funding for the exhibitions program now occupying several spaces in the Arts Center and is enriched by Art Talks, films, and more. This is an opportunity to support the Exhibitions Program at the Lawrence Arts Center. Approximately 150 works of art generously donated by artists will be on exhibit for four weeks to be auctioned during the April 8th auction event. Art featured in this benefit auction are a reflection of the diverse range of mediums and aesthetics seen in our galleries throughout the year. Visitors to the exhibition may make bids on both live and silent auction items; all bids start at 50% of retail value. Patrons may purchase silent auction works of art before April 14 for buy-out bids of 200% of retail value. The 2018 Featured Artist is Justin Marable.
