Established by artists in 1981 as a way to fund a not-for-profit gallery, the Lawrence Arts Center Annual Benefit Art Auction provides funding for the exhibitions program now occupying five spaces in the Arts Center and enriched by Art Talks, films, and more. Approximately 150 pieces generously donated by artists will be on exhibit for four weeks. Bidding on auction works is an opportunity to support exhibitions at the Lawrence Arts Center – all proceeds from sales go toward continuing to support the program.


Silent auction bidding is ongoing throughout the run of the exhibition, and works can be purchased at 200% of the retail value. Bid in the galleries or online beginning March 9.
