ARTcetera 2022 features artworks that support both a dynamic exhibition and an important fundraiser for the Art Center Association of Sioux City. ARTcetera is an auction that takes place on April 1, with artworks installed throughout the first-floor galleries. Tickets to the auction are available here. The exhibition brings together some of the best work by the most creative artists working locally and regionally for a great exhibition and auction. ARTcetera is a great opportunity to view work by artists you already know well, while discovering great artists with whom you are less familiar.
The opening reception for the ARTcetera exhibition will be on Friday, February 25, from 5-7pm.
Bidding for both silent and live auction artworks begins at the April 1 event. However, if there is an artwork in one of the three silent auction galleries that you absolutely must have, there is a way to purchase it before auction. Each artwork in the silent auction has a Buy It Now price, which will remain in effect on the website through March 31. Click the Buy Now button, and you will be able to complete the purchase through PayPal or credit card. Appropriate tax will be included in the final purchase price. For information on proxy bidding, please contact us at 712-279-6272.
The Sioux City Art Center will present ARTcetera, its triennial art auction, in early 2022 and we would love to include your artwork. The artworks in ARTcetera will be installed in our three first-floor galleries, totaling approximately 5,000 square feet.
While this is an important fundraising project for the Art Center, we want to make sure that it will be beneficial for the artists and collectors as well. If selected, artists may choose to retain up to 50% of the final bid up to retail value. Artworks are selected following a review process by a panel of jurors, including collectors and professionals. Benefits for participating artists include two complimentary tickets to the ARTcetera auction, copies of the auction catalog, and additional promotional opportunities.
ARTcetera proceeds fund education and exhibition programs and help the Sioux City Art Center remain free to the public.
