THE art auction
Presented by Denise & Donald Timmons
Join Verge Center for the Arts on Saturday, November 18th, for THE art auction!
THE art auction will be held on Saturday, November 18th at Verge Center for the Arts at 625 S Street in Sacramento. The evening begins at 5:30pm with two silent auction lots followed by a live auction at 7:00pm.
Among the more than 90 artists whose work will be auctioned are: Bob Brady, Michael Bishop, Lynn Criswell, Anne Gregory, Christine Shields, and Gerald Walburg. In addition to individual artist donations, THE art auction will also feature works from the collections of Sacramento art patrons.
Spotlighting emerging and established artists, THE art auction is an opportunity for new collectors to begin their collections. Savvy collectors can also grab pieces by renowned artists and discover new talent. Enjoy delicious bites and drinks while selecting works by the region’s premier artists.
New this year, THE art auction sponsors receive an exclusive invitation to a VIP sponsor-only reception and first-look preview on Thursday, November 9th. At this reception, VIP sponsors are invited to meet participating artists and gain insight into the works up for auction.
THE art auction ticket holders and Verge members are invited to attend our Second Saturday art auction preview on November 11th.
