The VOA Art Auction is a chance for the novice to show off their work, the experienced artist to help support those in need, and an opportunity for patrons to build their collections. The works are created in oil, acrylic, mixed media, pastels, photography, watercolor, stained glass, and more. The auction began as a way to showcase artists of all abilities in Maine while supporting individuals in need.
Join us on Friday, April 5, 2024, at the Bangor Arts Exchange from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The auction will be held online as well. The event and auction support VOA programs throughout Maine by providing essential items such as nonperishable food for a pantry in homes for older adults, winter hats and gloves for unhoused veterans, or a backpack full of school supplies for a deserving Maine 5th or 6th grader.
VOA is seeking donations of original artwork from Maine artists for the auction. Individuals of any age are invited to submit art for this exhibit. All mediums are welcome and may be 3-dimensional. Your work must be original. Artists are responsible for ensuring that there are no copyright issues or other legal issues attached to images used or the subjects of their submission. All submissions must be suitable for all audiences.
All submitted pieces are considered donations and become the property of VOA. All proceeds raised by the sale of the artwork are the sole property of VOA and will be used for charitable purposes. Unsold pieces remain the property of VOA and may be reserved for future events at the discretion of VOA.
