This summer, my painting Bowl and Beehive (showing Ocean Drive in Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island) will be auctioned off to the highest bidder on Sunday, July 31, at Point Lookout in Northport, Maine.
That's because I'm one of the artists who will be participating in Art To Collect Now, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art's 34th Annual Benefit Exhibition and Auction. The exhibition and sale, widely recognized as the premiere contemporary art auction in the state of Maine, draws nearly 1,000 viewers annually. This year it will showcase the work of "100 talented artists to buyers, collectors, and CMCA supporters throughout the state and beyond." Proceeds will fund CMCA's exhibitions and educational programs.
Although the show itself will take place at CMCA , from July 16 through July 30, 2011, the auction and dinner will be held at the Point Lookout Resort in Northport, Maine, on July 31.
I hope you will consider coming out and supporting the CMCA by bidding on your favorite art! Detailed information can be obtained by contacting the Center for Maine Contemporary Art.
