Art & Solstice Event, Exhibition and Auction
Benefits the Museums of Sonoma County
SANTA ROSA: The Museums of Sonoma County, located in downtown Santa Rosa, announces the Art & Solstice Exhibition and Auction on view in the Art Museum of Sonoma County's main galleries through December 21, 2017. A closing Solstice party with food, drink, performance and closing bids will take place from 5 - 7 pm on Thursday, December 21st.
This is an amazing opportunity for both aspiring and seasoned collectors to acquire high quality original works of art by some of the finest artists working in the Sonoma County region. The range in style, size, medium and pricing is vast with some works offered at starting bids as low as $25! At the high end there are major works valued as high as $9,000 with starting bids at a fraction of the value.
The Art & Solstice Exhibition features over 40 artists with over 80 contributed artworks. The show includes highlights by artists such as: Duncan Dwelle, Elaine de Kooning, Maria de Los Angeles, Molly Eckler, Maury Lapp, Adam Shaw, Kristen Throop, Mario Uribe, Thomas Vogel and many more. Proceeds from the sale of works benefit the Exhibition and Education programs of the Art Museum of Sonoma County.
All artwork will be on exhibition at the Art Museum from Saturday, December 2nd through Thursday, December 21st. Bids are placed in a silent auction format and may be made at any time during regular museum hours: Tuesday through Sunday 11am - 5pm. There is no limit to the number of bids that may be placed on a particular work and bidders also have the option to "buy it now" at the price listed on the bid sheet. Silent auction bidding will close during the Dec. 21st Solstice party between 5 and 7 pm. Bidders do not have to be present to win.
