Proceeds from our annual auction provide for gallery programming throughout the year and allows us to bring ambitious exhibitions by emerging and established artists. The auction will feature a variety of media: painting, collage, ceramics, sculpture, prints, glass and more, donated by artists and donors in Springfield, central Illinois, St. Louis and Chicago.


As always, we look to the loyal community to champion our work. Please visit our online auction and bid – or donate directly to the gallery as a show of your support:
