Dear Museum Friends:

I invite you to join a group of prestigious artists and collectors in supporting the Attleboro Arts Museum by donating to our 26th Benefit Art Auction.  The Auction, to be held on Saturday, November 4th, 2017, is regarded as a powerful opportunity to contribute to a vital cultural resource and for you and your artwork to gain valuable exposure.

We are asking for donations of framed or gallery-finished original art, and handmade gifts, crafts and objects created for the home from artists or collectors – as well as special items such as access to vacation homes or tickets to popular shows or attractions. All donations should be delivered to the Museum from Sept. 5th – 23rd, (Tues – Sat, 10am – 4pm).  We will gladly accept up to two pieces per donor.  Each piece should be accompanied by a completed donation form.  Please plan to deliver your donation(s) no later than September 23rd to maximize your items in advance of the auction.  

__________________________________________________________

Each donor of up to two items will receive:

  • A one-year Museum Artist or Individual Membership ($35 value)
  • One $35 Auction ticket (includes hors d’oeuvres & wine/beer)
  • Revenue sharing up to 20% on the sale of items valued at $300 or more
  • Marketing exposure on the Web and in the Museum’s gallery
  • An artist biography included in our full-color keepsake Auction catalog

__________________________________________________________

 

All donations will be on display in our gallery as part of our Spotlight Exhibition, opening on Thursday, October 12th with an opening reception at 6pm.  The live/silent Auction event will be held on Saturday, November 4th, 2017. 

We encourage donors to contribute artwork that best represents their current style and standard, as our online Auction and your artist profile reaches a broad audience of collectors and buyers. Download a donation form for your work.
