Art Auction

aa48 logo Fiery 48th Annual Art Auction- March 5th, 2016

We had 177 pieces in this year’s Art Auction.  The theme this year was fire (an unlikely choice since fire is not allowed in the museum).  New this year: flamenco jazz by Johnny Walker and flamenco dancing by Cecilia Scott.

Art Auction 48 was on view:
January 21, 2016 – March 5, 2016

The exhibition culminates in our annual Art Auction which consists of a silent auction, a live auction, a “Quick Draw,” and cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres, all within the beautiful background created by the museum’s spacious galleries. The auction begins Saturday, March 5, 2016 at 5 p.m. and features a dinner and dessert buffet catered by Thomas Nelson Catering. The Live Auction bidding begins at 7:30 p.m. and will include a raffle drawing for exquisite jewelry donated by Montague’s Jewelers and incredible Persian rug from Kismet Fine Rugs.  Advance tickets to the Art Auction event were $95 per person and $105 at the door.

Special thank you to those who attended this year’s event and for making the art auction a success!
