Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts Auction
The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) biennial fundraiser will be held February 23 and 25. More than 500 works of art will be auctioned to benefit the museum’s acquisition, exhibition, and education programs.
Works include oil paintings, watercolors, prints, sculpture, jewelry, glass, and fine art crafts. Among the artists are Bill Berra, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Frank Flemming and Milt Kobayashi.
“The Museum has acquired these artworks at substantial discounts,” said Lara Lewis, MMFA Director of Public Relations. With works coming from galleries as well as individual artists, “…the bidder has an excellent chance to acquire a superior artwork at a very reasonable price,” said Lewis.
Works will be offered at varying price points, providing bidding options for the novice collector as well as the seasoned connoisseur.
The exhibition opens for bidding February 4. There is no charge for a bid number, and early and reserve bids are accepted until the ticketed events.
The Silent Auction begins at 6:30 p.m. February 23. The gala begins at 6 p.m. February 25, followed by dinner and the Live Auction. You can also view the artwork at www.mmfa.org.
