The University of Illinois Springfield Visual Arts Gallery will hold its annual Silent Auction and Benefit fundraising exhibition starting on Monday, Dec. 3, 2018.
The auction will offer more than 100 items donated by local and regional artists. Ceramics, photography, glass, painting and drawing, crafts and more will be available at the auction. This event guarantees something for everyone, plus great food, drinks, and fun — all in support of the UIS Visual Arts Gallery mission. All events are open to the public.
Bidding begins on Monday, Dec. 3 and a closing event, along with final bidding, will take place on Thursday, Dec. 6 from 5:30-7 p.m. in the Visual Arts Gallery, room 201 in the Health and Science Building on campus.
This year the event will also feature a performance by UIS Music Camerata scholarship students from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Abigail Walsh, director of the program, will lead performances by a string quartet, soloists, and a voice, violin, and piano trio.
All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit UIS Visual Arts Gallery programming throughout the year.
