Join us for our first ever Silent Auction!

Only at the First Night Fundraiser November 17 from 5pm-9pm

To make our 2023 Winter Market even more special, Show + Sale will be hosting our very first Silent Auction at our First Night Fundraiser on November 17! For the first time, you can bid on a curated selection of one-of-a-kind art pieces made by AUArts students and exclusive arts experiences from AUArts Continuing Education. Just like your First Night Fundraiser ticket, a portion of Silent Auction proceeds go towards the AUArts Boost-A-Student Fund to help students in financial need.

What is the Silent Auction?

Our Winter Market Silent Auction will be held during the First Night Fundraiser on November 17 from 5pm-8pm at the Show[CASE] Gallery in the Main Mall. Guests will have an opportunity to browse through our special selection of artworks and experiences throughout the night. The artwork featured in our Silent Auction is not available anywhere else in the Winter Market so this is your chance to own a one-of-a-kind piece from our students for a great price!

Bidding time: 5pm-8pm

How do you bid?

Interested in bidding? The Silent Auction opens at 5pm and bidding will run until 8pm. Each artwork or experience will have a paper bid sheet you can use to write down your bid and contact information. You are welcome to bid multiple times until we close at 8pm sharp. The highest bidder at the end of the Silent Auction takes home the prize!

Winners announced: 8:15pm

How do I pick up my Silent Auction winnings?

After the Silent Auction closes, we will ask the winners to join us at the Show[CASE] Gallery at 8:15pm to pick up their winnings. Please note that you must be there in person to claim your artwork or experience!
