***Postponed***Auction for the Arts!
May 6, 2020 @ 8:30 am - May 16, 2020 @ 12:30 pm
The Haywood County Arts Council is holding its silent auction of original artwork from May 6 to 16th, 2020 at Cedar Hill Gallery. Bidding will begin at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, May 1 and end on Saturday, May 16 at 4:30 p.m.
The auction items will each have a “Buy Now” price so that visitors to our fine town will be able to take home their purchase on the day they see it. Artists who agree will be contacted to provide an additional artwork as items are sold. Bidders do not need to be present at the end of bidding in order to win. Winners will be called Monday, May 18 and may pick up items on May 18 – 23 between 12:00 pm and 4:30 pm at Cedar Hill Gallery, 196 N. Main Street in Waynesville.
100% of the proceeds from the auction will go toward HCAC’s Arts Now! Our Campaign for the Future. The goal of the campaign is to help fund the purchase of 196 N. Main Street and establish an emerging artist incubator with affordable studio space, creation space for youth arts educational programs, a dedicated music classroom, three additional classrooms, and an endowment.
The “Auction for the Arts” is vital to our fundraising success and will demonstrate that the Haywood County Arts Council has the support of its community’s artists. Please consider donating an original piece (or two!) of art in any medium. Any artwork not auctioned off will be retained by the HCAC for future raffles and/or fundraising activities.
