Upcoming Art Auction to Support the Studio in the Elementary School Art Program
The Marfa Studio of Arts is inviting you to help support a truly extraordinary cause, the 18th School Year of the Studio in the Elementary Program, where the transformative power of art ignites the imagination of Marfa Elementary School children. This program has been fully funded by the Marfa Studio of Arts, a non-profit arts organization since 2000 with a mission to share the artistic experience with all of the Marfa Community. We are seeking a small piece of your art and a little piece of your heart to contribute to our important mission. Picture this: an exciting silent auction and salon-style exhibition, curated to showcase the special works generously provided by our esteemed local artists and artist friends of the Marfa Community. This important event will be launched on Labor Day Weekend,, with the auction continuing to be open to the public for bids until September 30. Donate an existing work or create a special work for this event. Any artistic medium will be accepted but nothing larger than 24” in any dimension. These valued treasures will be available for immediate purchase through our "Buy Now" option, ensuring that the bidding frenzy comes to a close for those lucky souls who simply must possess your beautiful works. The proceeds of this event will flow directly into the support of the children's art program, providing the necessary fuel to fund a new year of artistic adventures in 2023-24. So, generous artists, mark your calendars! Deliver your works to the Marfa Studio of Arts during gallery hours, from August 15 to 19 and August 22 to 26 (1-5 p.m.). For those traveling on during these dates, special arrangements can be made for your masterpieces to find their way to the MSA gallery. We would happily accept mailed work to our P.O. Box 1189, Marfa,. Texas 79843. Let your artistic gift help encourage the imaginations of the next generation. Join us in this special effort as we celebrate the transformative power of art and ensure that the Marfa's children will continue to enjoy the excitement of the creative process. Together, let us paint a brighter future, one stroke at a time. For more information or to RSVP your work (we would love to know who will be bringing in work) send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or text Malinda at 432 559-7515.
