The 20th Annual ArtsBank Auction
The ArtsBank Auction is our annual fundraiser and a gala celebration of arts in education. The event includes an evening of music, refreshments and grande and silent auctions of donated items. The generous participation of area artists and patrons continues to re-create this event as a highlight of the winter season.
This year’s auction will be held on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at the Beverly Fire Hall.
We also hold a raffle at the event—$5 per ticket. See Raffle and Auction items.
Doors will open at 7:00 pm and the grande auction will start at 8:30 pm. Tickets are $30 per person. You may purchase tickets by mailing in reservations to
ArtsBank,Inc., PO Box 1933, Elkins WV 26241. Tickets are also available at the door the night of the auction.
Donate Auction Items
ArtsBank will soon begin the annual collection of art items for the annual auction. Please think of us during while creating.
Please consider donating quality hand-made or purchased items, services, or certificates to this popular event. This is an excellent way to have your name, work, or organization recognized by the community while supporting local youth. For the silent auction, our Acquisitions Committee will collect items from November through January. Most of these items will be displayed at the Jennings Randolph Federal Building in Elkins during February.
If you are interested in donating, please contact us. All donations must be submitted or arranged for pickup by February 1, 2019. ArtsBank complies with the same legal requirements as all public auctions in WV.
