Just wanted to pass on this info. about the CAP Auction. If you're interested in donating a piece of your artwork for consideration to be in the auction, read on! The drop off for artwork is coming up soon (1/25 and 1/26).
Please join us for Cascade AIDS Project’s 25th Annual Art Auction.
We are honored by the local art community’s support, and deeply gratified by the dramatic difference we’ve made together in the lives of thousands infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Once again we ask you to support CAP’s mission to prevent HIV infections, support and empower people affected and infected by HIV/AIDS and to eliminate HIV/AIDS related stigma by donating artwork for this important event.
The CAP Art Auction will take place on Saturday, May 3, 2014, at the historicMemorial Coliseum. The event is comprised of two parts: the Patron Dinner and Grand Event. The Patron Dinner includes a formal dinner on the floor of the Coliseum bowl with a live auction and entertainment, and the Grand Event takes place on the concourse and includes food and beverage from many of the best purveyors in town. Artists selected to be included in the live auction receive two complimentary tickets to the Patron Dinner (valued at $500) while those selected for the silent auction receive two complimentary tickets to the Grand Event (valued at $200). Details follow on the process for selecting art and how you can be involved.
Curator and Selection Committee
Curator Prudence F. Roberts teaches and directs the Helzer Art Gallery at Portland Community College’s Rock Creek campus. Prudence will choose no more than 15 live auction pieces and with the selection committee will choose 20 honorable mentions from among the 165 silent auction pieces. This year, our selection committee includes:Charles Froelick of Froelick Gallery, Daniel Peabody of Elizabeth Leach Gallery,Amy Caplan of Caplan Art Designs, Leah Jackson of Angst Gallery.
The minimum bid for artwork is 75% of the artist’s declared estimated value. A maximum of 200 pieces of art are selected for auction, and all artwork is juried with the goal of displaying professional high quality, well-crafted art of diverse media. Only one submission may be made per artist. Please note that artwork must be original; giclées, reproduction posters, and other reproduction items will not be accepted.
All selected art will be published online, and Live Auction and Honorable Mentions will appear in a printed catalog at the Patron Dinner. If you are a gallery-represented artist, and five or more artists contribute from the gallery that represents you, your art will be displayed together with prominent signage for the gallery.
