Each year, the Yellowstone Art Auction raises crucial support for the exhibitions and educational programs that the Yellowstone Art Museum presents to the community year-round. As much as we would love to again host the social event of the year, things will look a little different as we transition Yellowstone Art Auction 53 online.
We are thrilled to announce that over 800 works of art were submitted for jury to this year’s exhibition, setting a record, and welcoming new artists from around the country. We are so impressed by the quality and diversity that this exhibition will display. We want to ensure that these works are showcased to our community and the surrounding regions, both in person, and online. Opening night is slated for January 22, with the online bidding platform going live at 5 p.m. This is the first chance to see the work in person and online, and your first chance to bid on work via our Buy-It-Now platform. We will be hosting three intimate Quick-Finish Nights featuring two artists per night. This is your opportunity to watch some of your favorite artists complete work in real-time which will be auctioned off during the Live Auction portion of the event. These events will be in compliance with current Covid-19 guidelines. The exhibition and bidding culminate on March 6 at midnight.
