MAM’s 39th Benefit Art Auction exhibition features over 100 wonderful contemporary artists from near and far. The exhibition, with 26 pieces of Silent Auction artwork and 76 pieces of Live Auction artwork, represents a diverse spectrum of media from painting and drawing to ceramics and photography. It is an impressive survey of the best emerging and established contemporary art in our region. This is an exciting year for the auction exhibition. The display will celebrate community and regional favorites such as George Gogas, Stephanie Frostad, M. Scott Miller, and Lela Autio, along with many exceptional emerging artists including Andy Cline, Clay Mahn and Joshua Meier.
Each artist has donated at least 50% of the sale of their artwork to MAM’s 39th Benefit Art Auction on February 5; and this year over 25 artists have donated their artwork at 100%, while 15 more artists have donated 75% of their proceeds. This communicates the artists’ commitment and support of MAM’s work in our region.
