Providing assistance for artists in crisis. Annual August Art Auction

25th Annual Art Auction - 2021

Our 25th annual art auction was a huge success, bringing in more than $42,000. The unmasked crowd was energetic and excited to bid on dozens of paintings and sculptors by well known artists, including Rick Stoner, Lani Vlaanderen, Dan Glanz, Herb Mignery, Cammie Lundeen, George Walbye, Tamara Simmons, Karol Mack, David Harms, Cathy Goodale and James Biggers. George Lundeen's sculpture of two dogs. Golden was so popular he agreed to have additional ones cast so each of six bidders could have one.
One of our most successful auctions - everyone is already looking forward to next year. ~ Judy
