What is the Red Dot Auction?

We've asked artists from around the world, both emerging and world-renowned, to contribute a work of art to our spring fund-raiser.  What you'll see when you join us May 11th is one of the gallery walls hung with over 50 works of art, all of which will have begun with a blandk 12" square canvas.  The artists have contributed watercolors, photographs and mixed media as well as more traditional paint on canvas works.  The one thing they all have in common though, is that they have signed their artwork on the reverse

Why are the artists anonymous?

We feel it adds the 'spice' to this silent auction.  With bidding beginning at just $100.00 per work of art, and increasing in $50.00 increments with each bid, the opportunity to own a work of art that may normally sell for thousands of dollars for far less is quite possible.  But, you'll have to trust your heart--not the artist's signature--to make that decision.

Why a red dot? 

Traditionally, when a work of art sells in a gallery, a red dot will be placed on the wall next to it.
