...Also: Paintout/Auction/Sweepstakes Draw - Saturday, October 11

This year, we have changed the format of the Paintout/Auction. We will not have a live auction. Instead there will be a silent auction along with the paint-out and Sweepstakes Draw.

In the same Founder's spirit, we are breaking with tradition and initiating a triple-crown event as the annual fundraiser.

The Paint-Out is the same as in the past, except for the manner of selling the paintings, which will be by silent auction. For those not painting out that day who'd like to participate, the silent auction will be open to everyone. Whether or not you participate in the paintout, we would appreciate the donation of a painting or two for the silent auction. For those not able to donate, a 50% commission will be required on all work sold.

The Silent Auction will include additional items such as dinners at restaurants, wine baskets, jewelry, etc. Artist may set a beginning amount for the Silent Auction.

Capping off the evening will be the Sweepstakes Draw - an opportunity to buy original art by some of the premier painters of our time. See Sweepstakes Draw 2014 to preview the works that will be available and learn about the artists who have generously donated work to support the Kent Art Association.

RECEIVING DATES (Silent Auction): October 3-11, 2014 during gallery hours at the KAA Gallery, Route 7, 21 South Main Street (just south of the traffic light), Kent CT. We want to display the works in the gallery prior to the event to generate interest. Artists interested in submitting work, click here for the prospectus.
