New Online Opportunities for Annual Celebration of Art
For the first time since the event’s inception, several new additions to Celebration of Art will make featured artwork available remotely to the public. An online auction will launch on September 4th and run through September 19th, featuring specially selected original pieces from participating artists.
There will be a link to the auction from grandcanyon.org/coa as soon as it is live. In order to bid, you must complete a brief registration form. Silent auction winners will be announced Sunday, September 20th.
The studio pieces created by each artist will be available to purchase remotely through an Intent to Purchase ballot process. These stunning works of art will be featured in the print and digital event catalogue. Prospective buyers will fill out an “intent to purchase” form online for each piece. The winners will be randomly drawn and announced on Sunday, September 20th.
On the “opening” weekend of the Celebration of Art exhibition, the gallery will be open at Kolb Studio by private appointment only. To reserve a time, please visit Grand Canyon Coservancy’s website for more information. Kolb Studio will remain closed otherwise.
The online exhibition and sale will go live on September 25th and will continue through January 18th, 2021.
Please visit grandcanyon.org/coa for event updates and links to all online activities.
