Stay tuned as our 2019 Fine Art Auction Prospectus will be available soon! We will start reviewing submissions starting in January, 2019.
The USBANK Fine Art Auction is not only The Art Center’s largest fundraiser of the year, but is also an opportunity for artists, art-lovers and collectors to show their support of their Art Center. The Art Center’s mission is to improve quality of life by promoting the arts in Western Colorado. The Art Center staff, board, and volunteers work year-round to make that happen. One time each year, The Art Center asks artists and collectors to donate work for the fine art auction to help assure The Art Center’s mission continues to grow. Bringing artwork and buyers together for a spirited evening of bidding and showcasing fine art has become an annual event. It provides an appreciative audience an opportunity to purchase artwork and show their support of the arts in Western Colorado. In return, The Art Center continues to be able to provide:
- Accessible arts education, including a scholarship program, for youth and adults of all ages and abilities,
- thought-provoking exhibitions featuring local, regional, and nationally-acclaimed artists,
- a venue for local art guilds and community members to gather,
- free First Fridays and programs such as the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, Demo Night, and Spring Art Week,
- and a Permanent Collection that preserves Colorado’s rich history and culture.
