A Two-Night Affair
ArtSpan’s Benefit Art Auction 2019 Broke New Ground
2019-10-01
Following the dizzying success of our 2018 auction, we knew that our supporters expected something extra special this year, and we delivered! This year’s event unfolded over two nights. It began with a Thursday night VIP Preview Celebration, where guests enjoyed an elegant meal, fine wine, live entertainment and a supercharged presentation from the stage. These patrons had the opportunity to bid on some exclusive offerings in advance of the auction night. Saturday was the main event, with a gallery packed with art and buyers. Bidding was on fire, and our returning auctioneer, Renee Richardson, kept the competition friendly but fierce. We are grateful for the incredible generosity of our artists, supporters and volunteers who made this epic event so successful. The money raised goes directly into our programming and supporting our move to the ArtSpan Onondaga Art Center. Over 150 works were selected by our esteemed jurors.
