GCCA Garden Party – LIVE Auction

Enjoy a LIVE Auction of GCCA Artist Members’ Work!


Greene County Council on the Arts invites everyone to its Annual Garden Party fundraiser at the historic riverside estate, Beattie-Powers Place, on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from noon to 5 pm.  This year a LIVE Auction will take place at 3 pm. GCCA Artist Members submitted original artwork in early June for jury consideration and 15 outstanding works were selected for inclusion in the LIVE Auction. The chosen artists include Eugenie Barron, Paul Barton, Susan Beecher, Allen Bryan, Laura Garramone, Alexandria Gilbert, Carter Hodgkins, Erika M. Klein, Maria Kolodziej-Zincio, Mara Lehmann, Linda Nicholls, Franc Palaia, Susan Sabino, Beth Schneck and Ken Tannebaum. The LIVE Auction is an opportunity for GCCA Artist Members to sell their work and donate a portion of the sale to GCCA, too. Many of the works will begin at a $150 starting bid. A “Local Celebrity” will act as auctioneer and we don’t want to keep you in suspense, so please preview the LIVE Auction works. Click here for more information about the Garden Party.
