Forever Home Fine Art Auction

Final Fundraiser for the GMAEC Capital Campaign
Beginning September 26th

The Forever Home Fine Art Silent Auction is the final fundraising event for the

Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center Capital Campaign.

The event was suggested by Ouida Touchon,

a Delta artist, who stated she wanted to contribute but had art, not cash.

Week-long bidding begins on September 26th.  The public is invited to place their final bids on a limited number of one of a kind fine art pieces donated by local artists.  These artists have been featured in the gallery over the past several years and are generously donating one piece of their work for the fundraiser.

See below for a preview of the artwork being auctioned.

A wine and cheese reception will end the bidding period on Sunday, October 2nd from 3:00 - 5:00 pm.

 

 RSVP requested for the reception by email (info@gmaec.org) or phone (970-856-9195).

 

Bids may be submitted by phone Monday thru Saturday 10am to 4pm and Sunday 12-4:30pm.
