2016 Annual Benefit Auction http://penland.org/support/annual_auction.html
Friday, August 12 & Saturday, August 13
The Penland School of Crafts Annual Benefit Auction is the premiere craft auction in the southeast, providing funds to support the operations of Penland School of Crafts while introducing new artists to collectors and expanding public understanding and awareness of craft.
Entering its 31st year in 2016, the auction attracts over 800 collectors and volunteers to the Penland campus in the mountains of North Carolina each August. The weekend brings artists and patrons together and provides collectors with opportunities to meet established and emerging artists, learn about trends in contemporary craft, and see and purchase exceptional new work. If you are passionate about art and interested in investing in the health and the future of the arts, join us for this gala event.
All attendees who register online by April 30 will be entered to win a pair of tickets to the historic Biltmore Estate in Asheville.
