Artists' Charitable Fund

Providing assistance for artists in crisis. Annual August Art Auction

2015 Art Auction

Our 2015 - 20th Annual Art Auction - was a huge success, netting nearly $40,000! Two weeks before the auction we had only 32 donated paintings and sculptures for the auction. However, in the last few days before the auction, artists came through, so that we ended up with 63 items for the live auction and 25 items for the silent auction.

In good-natured fun, auctioneer, sculptor George Lundeen teased and prodded the audience so that it was a fun, entertaining evening beneath the stars with great pieces of art, friends, collectors and artists.

A big thank you to all the artists who donated original paintings and sculptures, to the volunteers who helped transport and set up art work, signed in bidders, and cashiered. Also, thank you to Home State Bank - Trust Department, Loveland for sponsoring the evening's food and to Paul Hummel, Investment Centers of America, Loveland for sponsoring the beverages.

After 13 years of coordinating this annual event, I rate 2015 as one of the best art auctions! Even the weather cooperated.
