This exciting event is one-part exhibition of local and regional artists and one-part fundraising auction. The Art Center’s Main Gallery will be filled with a great assortment of fantastic art made by exceptionally talented and very generous artists from Siouxland and from across the Midwest. And everything is available for purchase! While those attending the reception get the first opportunity to add these works to their collections, all of the art will remain on display through August 7, giving visitors the opportunity to view the exhibition and buy unsold work.
The Sioux City Art Center is proud to present ARTcetera ’16, featuring works by artists who were invited to participate in this dynamic exhibition and fundraiser. ARTcetera ‘16 follows the successful formula established in earlier ARTcetera projects in 2009 and 2013: bring together some of the best work by the most creative artists working locally and regionally for a great exhibition; and kick off the exhibition with an exciting and elegant reception in which more than sixty artworks are auctioned to raise funds for the educational and exhibition programs of the Art Center.
We are delighted with the variety and consistently high quality of the artworks submitted this year. The exhibition is an excellent presentation of the variety of talented artists who are living and working in our community and region. I want to thank the artists for their thoughtful and generous donations toward this important project.
On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, ARTcetera ’16 begins with a live and silent auction. Any works that are not sold during this opening auction will be available for purchase during the remainder of the exhibition at a set price. All works will remain on display through Sunday, August 7, 2016.
