ABOUT THE AUCTION
These professional artists from Galveston and the surrounding area (including Houston) have contributed to the Galveston Art Bound 2016 Silent Art Auction. Each artist was asked to submit an original work of art that was made or inspired by books/printed materials to support Children's Literacy and Art Education programs.
We are very proud to present such a diverse selection of artwork for the discerning art buyer. Bidding for each piece will start at just a fraction of the original value, making professional works of art within reach for many. If you collect the work of any of these artists, or would like to start a collection, this auction held at the Galveston Arts Center October 7th and 8th is a great opportunity.
Many of the artists will be in attendance at the Art Bound Book Art Silent Auction Preview Party on Friday, October 7th from 5-7PM at Galveston Arts Center. One f them, Catherine Stroud, will even be performing with her band, The Ukuladies. Come to meet the artists and learn more about what it is about books that motivates them to create visual art. With bites to eat from both ShyKatz Deli and Farley Girls Cafe, it's sure to be an evening of beauty and delight.
