More Art Sought for Fresh Start Art Auction

An original by James Kuiper – not at art auction

When the Owls moved from Illinois to New Jersey to Brazil to Miami to Brazil again and then Weston, we definitely had a changeover in our art. Tropical prints don’t so much cut it here, nor Maine landscapes in São Paulo, and so we moved our art there and then back, and some probably is still stuck in the Brazilian art customs strike (true story) of 2014 While some is in storage awaiting the next life/decor choice, some I will need to think about– and think fast because it has the chance to have a new life through the Weston Art & Innovation Center’s Fresh Start Art Auction.

The Weston AIC has been actively soliciting donations of artwork to include in the silent auction–you may have seen some of the yard signs around town.  They are still looking for more– to be considered for the auction, all entries must be received by the September 30th deadline.  (See here for detailed instructions on how to donate artwork.)  The Selection Committee will then choose a total of 50 works, aiming for a variety of styles, media, sizes, price ranges and categories.

An Owlet art masterpiece, grade 7. Also not being donated, now framed on a living room wall.

The Silent Auction will help offset the costs of the Weston AIC operating budget.  Interested buyers will bid on donated works of art (original paintings, prints, drawings, pastels, photographs and sculpture) during a 3-day period online.   The auction runs from October 21-23.

All works up-for-bid can be viewed in person at the Weston AIC (356 Post Road, Weston, MA 02493) on Friday 10/22 and Saturday 10/23, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  The artwork may be viewed online beginning Thursday, 10/21 at 5:00 p.m. and ending Saturday, 10/23 at 5:00 p.m.

For more information, please contact the Weston Art & Innovation Center.

Incipit Vita Nuova – or here begins new life (for your art). For your trivia of the day, that is the Latin saying on the Wellesley College coat of arms. And the first line of a Dante book filled with cheeriness.
