Thank you for making the first Annual WE THE ARTISTS Benefit Auction a success!

Held on Sunday, October 13, 2019 at 1 pm, the WE THE ARTISTS Benefit Art Auction saw the participation of nearly 100 artists. Auctioneer and artist, Norm Magnusson sold the 113 artworks that were generous donated to support WAAM’s year-long exhibition programs for artists and the art community. WAAM would like to extend a special thank you to all of the artists who donated, making this sale possible and to the panelists of our October 12th Map of the (ART) World Panel Discussion, Julie Torres, artist and co-director of LABspace, Hudson, Sharon Butler, founder of the blog Two Coats of Paint and and Jason Rulnick, Senior Specialist in Contemporary Art at Artnet and moderated by moderated by Carter Ratcliff, American art critic.

WAAM was founded in 1919 by artists seeking to foster their fellow artists by providing exhibition space and building a strong community of artistic support. The contemporary artists of our region celebrate this long history by donating artwork to WAAM to be auctioned in WAAM’s first contemporary art auction. These donations provide important funding that allows WAAM to continue this proud legacy, providing artists a showcase to exhibit and a community that fosters free and equal expression.
