ANNUAL SILENT AUCTION FUNDRAISING EVENT
Free Preview and Early-Bird Bidding
September 18 – October 2, 2020
Final Online Bids!
Friday, October 2, 7:00pm
LEBANON, NH – AVA Gallery and Art is proud to host its 30th Silent Auction held at its 11 Bank Street location in Lebanon, NH. Preview and early-bird bidding will begin Friday, September 18 and continue through October 2, in our named galleries or online at avagallery.org. Bidding will conclude online Friday, October 2, at 7pm. Items may be won any time during the preview if the bidder offers the “buy it now” amount.
Local artists and craftspeople have donated work including oil paintings, pastels, watercolors, photographs, sculpture, mixed-media works, drawings, prints, jewelry, ceramics, woodwork, and glass. Donations from local businesses—including jewelry, fashion accessories, and other items--are also a highlight of the auction.
If you already have everything you’ll ever need, we have an opportunity to support the purchase of a covering for an outside “5th studio” to widen our response to current challenges through a Fund-a-Need option for bidding.
No admission is charged to preview the Silent Auction Exhibition or to make early-bird bids.
Proceeds from this annual fundraiser help support every aspect of AVA’s art programming and mission, including art classes and workshops, exhibitions by established and emerging artists, scholarship and internship opportunities.
