10×10 Name Unseen Silent Auction
August 5 – 20, 2022
Opening Reception: Friday, August 5, 5–7PM
“This is always a favorite community event,” says the Art Base’s Executive Director, Skye Skinner. She continued, “our supporters love trying to guess who created these incredible works of art, and our participating artists donated extraordinary pieces for 2022.”
The general public will have the opportunity to view the 10×10 Name Unseen Silent Auction until Friday, August 19, but can bid online until the auction closes at 6:30PM the following evening, Saturday, August 20. Ticket holders for the Art Base’s annual pARTy will have the last opportunity to view the work in person, from 5-6:30PM (also on August 20), then will immediately head to Lions Park for a catered dinner, a program about the Art Base’s educational offerings, and an annual paddle raise from 7-9PM.
This year’s pARTy will honor local artist Teresa Booth Brown as the recipient of the 2022 Melva Bucksbaum Dedication to the Arts Award, the first honoree since 2019.
“Art is a powerful lens through which we can see ourselves and our world. Art education helps us learn how to use that lens and to share its vast potential,” said Booth Brown when asked about receiving the award.
