'Silent Night' Art Auction Info

WHO: XYZ Gallery

WHAT: We will be hosting our first annual Silent Night, a silent auction event. For auction submission items, we are looking for local Blacksburg artists to showcase their incredible talents. Artwork of all media—paintings, drawings, jewelry, clothing, graphic design metal work, ceramics, sculpture, and other forms—can be accepted.  A night of spirited bidding on art works accompanied by great live music and refreshments!

WHERE: XYZ Gallery, 223 South Main Street, Blacksburg, VA

WHEN: Friday, December 10th, 6-10 PM.  Tickets are $2 in advance, and $3 at the door.  Participants in the event receive a complimentary ticket!

WHY: A $10 fee from each seller will go directly to XYZ Gallery’s operating costs, ensuring continued shows and exhibitions at the XYZ Gallery, which is dedicated to showcasing local artists. 

And why not? Need a great, unique holiday gift? HERE’S YOUR CHANCE!!

HOW:  There will be a $10 submission fee, allowing each seller to receive their total profit if desired.  Those who would like to participate must e-mail Alexandra Militano, by November 15th.  Drop off time and location to be determined—which will be after Thanksgiving Break.

After the auction, artists will be notified by e-mail by December 15, with the sale price of artwork and directions for reimbursement.  Unsold artwork can either be donated to the XYZ Gallery or picked up at the same location as drop-off.  If artwork is unclaimed within three weeks of notification, it will become property of XYZ Gallery!
