Small Works Exhibit and Auction
July 26 through September 8, 2016
Big Ideas Contained in Small Art!
Small Works Exhibit & Auction
The Taube Museum of Art Main Gallery announces the opening of their ninth annual Small Works Exhibit & Auction, which is a collection of works no larger than 80 square inches. The exhibition opened July 26th and runs through September 8th. These amazingly diverse artworks are available to bid on in a variety of ways; in person by visiting the museum, online at www.taubemuseum.org, and on our Facebook page, with the ability for online visitors to place bids by email, phone, or Facebook. We encourage the public to call to check on the status of their bids and we will be happy to “up” their bid if interested. Started last year, a visitor also has the option to purchase a piece at the buy it now price, and take it home right away, rather than wait until the close of the exhibition.
Small art seems to have gained popularity over the years so the Taube Museum of Art created a venue for the excitement! Small artworks are easy for artists to ship, easy for people to purchase, and even easier to add to a collection, because they fit into a small space on a wall or a bookshelf. “We are very excited to have such a great response to our Small Works exhibition! The community looks forward to this annual exhibition!” This year the exhibition features 135 entries from 35 local and regional artists. A few of the artists participating in this exhibition include Steve Knutson, Judith Greenwood, Nancy Walter, Tonya Stuart-Melland, Ben Dagget, Andrea Donovan, and Roxi Mathis. New this year is Kathy Blessum, Isaac Haffner, KayLee Revier, and Tammy Hoffert to name a few.
Exhibit/Silent Auction dates are July 26 – September 8, 2016. A closing reception for this Exhibition Fundraiser will be held on Thursday evening, September 8, from 5 – 7 pm. The reception is free and open to the public. Come out and meet the artists and add to your art collection. A select number of artists will be invited to extend the display of their work through September 15th to be included in a special exhibition as part of the Downtown Fall Wine Walk.
A portion of the auction proceeds will support the Taube Museum of Art, a non-profit organization, with the rest to the artist. Normal Museum and Gift Shop hours are: Tuesday – Friday: 10:30 am – 5:30 pm and Saturday: 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the Taube Museum fulfill their mission of enriching lives through the visual arts.
Please contact Nancy F. Walter, Executive Director or Doug Pfliger, Gallery Manager at 838-4445 for further information.
The exhibition is made possible with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts.
